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.

suspension set-up

Finally have the funds to do a suspension over haul. Would liie to get springs, shocks, possibly sway bars, strut tower braces, and re-do some bushings here and there. Your thoughts on good product!?

Ground Control. Coil over convertions. They just released a kit. With koni's for 1,000 which is a pretty good price. They are at street rate.

I wouldn't focus on all the toy ebay racer stuff. Check your lower control arm ball joints, bushings and what not. New lower control arm set ups will do a lot more than a strut brace...speaking of which, I still am not even positive how great they are considering none of the major manufacturers or tuners use them (AMG, M and R). I had a gauge that measures force, long story short, when you put it between the struts on a brace, it doesn't read much at all. I know many people will disagree but facts are facts.

If you close the gap between the shock towers front and rear, you get a more rigid set up. I would like to look into the bushings down there but i want to know exactly what i should be replacing...
