I am looking at redoing the stock suspension on my '97 M3 sedan. Bilstein seems to be a preferred setup. I am looking at the B8 sport setup. Do I also have to replace the stock springs with lowering springs to use the B8 sport shocks/struts, or can I keep the stock springs? I am not necessarily looking to lower the car.

Thanks, Horn.

The quote from the website is specifically why I asked the question. It leads one to believe you need to use lowering springs. I can buy a complete B8 kit without lowering springs or the B12 kit with lowering springs. I am not sure I want to suffer a firmer ride with the lowered suspension, but many people seem to go with the lower ride height. It looks a little better as well.
