  1. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    OK so I purchased used front strut/hub complete assemblies from an auto recycler. $75 each with Bilsteins (not sure of which model inserts) so potentially a good deal and upgrade from the totally shot originals (160K miles!). Much stiffer, of course - but the suspension is now raised so that the...

    Hi guys, I am going to lower my M3, probalby gonna go with H&R. Can you mix use super sports and sports? I like the super sports front lower and the sports rear lower.(I know right, I am a little picky. LOL) so does anyone know if it is ok to mix use the springs or it will mess up...
  5. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a problem with my front suspension being to low. The clearing between tire and wheel arch is about 1 inch lower that other 530XD I have found to compare with. Only the front differs, the rear has the same hight as compared cars. I have tried to check for 3rd party parts but it seems to be...

    Hey Guys, My new bimmer failed MD state inspection Tuesday. They say the rear springs and shocks need to be replaced. Can you guys recommend some places to get parts for a rear suspension? I was looking at eeuroparts.com and building up a cart but I wanted to get the opinions of some more...

    Hi, I was wondering if it will affect the programmed driving mode if we either change the spring or change a whole suspension kit??? I mean since the car is lowered, would the computer get tricked or something? If you guys know what I am talking about, please educate me. Thanks!

    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...

    I just got a set installed last week, and I'm having trouble with noise. In some turning angle, like when you exit a raised parking lot and want to accelerate fast, there's a noise like the rear spring is squeaking in it's seating. I'm taking it in to the garage today to have it checked, and...
  14. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Ok so I have a 1994 325i that had blown shocks...like it felt more like I was driving a boat lol. Ok so I picked up those mookeeh mk1 shocks off eBay cuz honestly who can pass up all 4 for $160. Ok so everything is the correct size but the threads for the shock mounts is a full inch shorter than...
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So what the &$^#? I am driving along, press in the clutch, and feel something fall on my foot. At the next light I look down to see these parts on the floor. Anybody know what these are, I assume they are some sort of assist for the clutch. The effort does seem slightly harder now to depress...
  16. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi everyone, looking for some help/advice. I have a 1999 T Reg Z3M Roadster and it has just failed its MOT on a broken rear suspension spring. Been quoted £150+vat for a BMW only part, is the 2000 3.0 litre model suspension spring any different to that on the 3.2 1999 model, spoke to a few...

    I found out that the rear spring on my 2003 BMW 325xi broke. I thought it would be an easy task finding some new ones but it seems next to impossible. Does anyone know where I can get a pair of rear springs that do not cost an arm and a leg. I swear I've looked everywhere :mad: I just want...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey everybody, I've searched the forums on suspension issues and I believe my rear driver side upper shock mount just failed today. We are looking to do all 4 corners of the car with new springs/shocks and would like to keep it all stock height as we drive the car in the winter and we don't...
