Where and what is a good price to pay for a rear halfshaft?
Also later I am wanting to have someone go through the suspension to replace any worn bushings. I also want to drop it down a few inches. Any suggestions?

I just installed Bavarian Autosport sport springs on my 533i. I paired them with Bilstein shocks. I am very happy with the results. It handles well. It is very low in the rear though (see the picture below). I am considering flipping the bottom spring plate over so it sits about a half inch higher in the back. I am very happy with the height in the front.
