  1. 3 Series & 4 Series
    Hello fellow Bimmerheads! I just replaced the front struts on my 2007 335i 4 door sedan and was wondering about how long it takes for the them to get broken in and settle down a little. I know that new struts make the vehicle sit a lot higher than the old worn out struts did. Also, about how...
  2. General BMW Questions
    I've just purchased a 2014 435d xdrive and have a concern regarding the ride height against all the speed bumps where I live. The car has an aftermarket bumper already larger than stock and has been fitted with AC Schnitzer springs lowering it about 20mm. I'm thinking of switching back to stock...

    Not knowing what the cause is, in which order should I replace components? Should I replace the springs first? The lower bushings? 2003 3.0i X5 140k miles springs
  4. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    My issue persist with my 2006 BMW X5 4.8iS(4-Corner Leveling Sport Suspension). The passenger side sits lower than the driver side. All the bags have been replaced and the compressor is fine and there aren't any leaks. The SLSIACT code was gone for a while after replacing the front air struts...
  5. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    I recently took delivery of my brand new X5. What is really bothering me is this X5 is significantly lower (less ground clearance) then other 2017 X5 at the dealership. I did not opt for M package, nor any of the packages I selected had option for adjustable height, but I did opt for 20" Light...

    A while ago I replaced the front struts on my car with Bilsteins. Everything went OK with it but I was never happy with the ride height which was too high (never think it will 'settle', it won't). I measured it at 15.5 inches from hub to guard lip. Today I was doing the work of replacing the...

    What else besides alignment needs us to be weighted to the normal ride height? I threadjacked by asking here (control arm) http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showpost.php?p=9319501&postcount=15 And the answer came back to look here (alignment)...

    What Wheel and suspension setup should be used in order to prevent the car from hitting speed bumps and yet look good
  9. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)

  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I happen to be lowering my 335xi soon and want to know what you guys think about this. I am fairly new to this, so some feedback would be great. So I have done ALOT of research and even though sometimes I get conflicting reports, this is the general agreement for what I found to be the best...
  11. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Gday, I have a negative camber problem and need assistance in finding the stock ride height and compare to my own, to find out if the springs in my e30 are sagging; and in turn causing my camber problem. There are no adjusters to fix it and am not willing to buy a camber kit. Thanks

    The BMW TIS has a table--explained here http://www.bmwmotorsports.org/BMW_docs/x5align.pdf --that provides stock ride heights. According to Jim Cash, "measurement is to be done with car in normal loaded condition." In other words, ride height is measured in what the TIS calls "normal position,"...
  13. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I just recently purchased a 2003 X5 4.4i and i noticed that the switch to adjust the ride height does nothing, it shows a led in the normal setting but thats it. if u press it nothing happens, no blinking, nothing. BUT the car sits totally level and rides perfectly fine (no inact message). ive...
  14. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hey guys, I'm looking for information in regards to the best deal on lowering springs/shocks. I know this has been done to death, and I have done my research, but I'm looking for something a little more local, since postage from the States will cost me near on $200, if not more. I don't need...
  15. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I recently changed the rear springs of my car because the old ones had cracked. Today I noticed that the rear left side of the car is about 1/2 an inch higher than the rear right side of the car. I googled around and didn't find anything for certain although I did find some things about that the...

    I just installed (10k Miles ago) new Sachs front struts on my 1999 528i Sport and the ride height has increased about 10mm. It visually looks like the non-sport wheel gap. Has anyone experienced this and have input? NOTE: I'm an experienced installer and have double checked my work. The lower...
