I love the drop on the staggered M-Pars One of my favorite e34 looks.

No way I could go that low... I am currently looking at studded Nokian Hakka 7's and one of those steel front skidplates with a stock ride height

id have the rear fender at about the height of the rim. Its just the way the body is cut on the E34. anything else and it looks like a rake. He couldve got that stance from shocks/springs (exactly what i did, very similar stance) so why not do what coilovers are mean to do?

It'll also handle better with the lower rear, it probably wont squat like mine does due to the stiffness of the coils. Can't have a big, tall, waggin' butt flingin all over corners...

OP, future plans to dial them in?

Thanks guys for the compliments. The rear will come down a tad. I really like the stance though. The rear's not that much higher than the front.
Actually really I was more worried about hitting the oil pan before, now I really have no worries. However I will be looking into a skid plate just to be safe.
I could have gone with spring and shocks but it being a m-sport with the edc deleted I felt this was the closest to replacing it. Also this car never had the assemblies replaced so it had the old edc assemblies on the front. From what I've determined you can't put regular shocks in the edc's so it seems I was riding around on blown shocks and eibach springs.
I've also been into cars for a while, and (flame suit on) used to read Lowrider, and alot of old turner mags. I've always wanted coilovers.

How did I miss the front install. Looks good man.
I wish I could put mine that low. But jersey roads aren't kind and last time I did it I nearly ripped off my bumper.

Got to love those GA/TN roads. Again looks right and ready to roll brochacho.

Yeah I do scrape mine pretty bad on parking lot enterances. However I'm thinking of going with a different bumper. Really like the m-tech but I think you need a stock bumper to attach it to.
