Hard time locating quick struts for E92 with sports package

Hey all,

I am wanting to take on the project of replacing my suspensions and I have a friend helping me. I've contacted a few places such as getbmwpaets.com and fcpeuro.com and I cannot locate quick struts for my car.

I would appreciate some input on how I can source those so I don't have to go through the hell of compressing springs.

Thanks!

What are quick struts?

What you can do depends on the budget - what's the limit? At minimum, recommend [this] --- [here] is why you seriously want to replace your rear subframe bushings.

Quick struts are a fully equipped and assembled strut including the spring, seats, strut, top bearing, etc. They're mostly designed to speed repairs for mass market cars, like domestics and some Japanese imports. Suppliers such as Monroe are big on them.

Unlikely that you will find anything of quality in that style for BMW's though.

You could always buy everything and do the assembly yourself, then pop them in.

Ground Control
can supply, but it'll be custom for what the customer wants.

That's a good thing.
