Suspension Kits?

I am looking for a front-end suspension kit for my 80 320i. Does one exist? For that matter I also would be interested in a rear-end kit. But first the front-end. This is my first post, so hello to all and I hope someone can help me out.

Try Bavauto.com. Thay have some good stuff. SAk them about doing the rear. You will need to modify the suspension carrier so that you don't get too much neg camber. Good luck.

as far as suspension parts go i have not found a "ton" of suspension parts for the e21...in a discussion with the folks over at ireland engineering i discovered that they sell a very common sense "kit" (i don't think they call it a kit however!) . . . as you may know most "modern" cars have adjustment in the rear end suspension that allows for a positive and negative adjustment in the rear end...

i had a over steering problem with my '77 320i and found that most of the bushing were badly worn and the corrected a lot of the problem...i have also discovered that the rear sway bar and the front for that matter has traditionally been "beefed up" with slightly larger diameter sway bars which is on my to-do-list...of course a good set of coil-over wouldn't hurt either . . .
