    I have a 1999 m3 and I just replaced my front and rear shocks and rack and pinion. My front passenger wheel is scraping against the strut (just the pressure sensor that is on the inside rim scrapes). Is this just because the car is out of alignment or is there a bigger issue. Also if it is...

    Hello fellow Bimmers, I am replacing a rear shock (strut) and I'm in a bind. I have spring compressors but don't think I can crunch them down enough to mount the bottom bolt of the strut into the mounting. In the past, I have used the weight of the car to compress the spring, but the strut...

    In looking at a couple of M Roadsters over the weekend, I some pictures of some cracks I found on the front shock tower weld seams. Needless to say, I haven't purchased this car, and I wanted to get an impression of how serious an issue this is and whether or not it is a deal breaker or just a...

    Hey everybody, our new shocks came in today for the 323ci and as I opened the boxes and started looking at the instructions, I was surprised to find them pretty confusing to say the least. I'm wanting to install the rear shocks tomorrow as the rear driver side failed and I thought that the...
