E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Awesome man! BahnBaum has A LOT of E30 suspension experience. I believe he has a stickied thread at Bimmerforums.com.

Good Luck!

thnaks misterlance,
i'll look up BahnBaum posts.

this is what i did so far...
- installed frame brake lines,
- rear sway bar,
- trailing arms into sub-frame,
- 3 jacks, raise whole assambly, wiggle in and attach old shocks to trailing arms., then you can pullback and forth on subframe assambly, line i up with S/F screws, dont forget washer between bushing and frame.
