another spring question?
 
wats up everyone?

i just bought an 01 325ci coupe sport pkg.
now i want to lower it because it is just a little to high for me!
i was planing on doing just springs and sways, but im hearing stories of a decrease in shock life!

Is this true and generally how much less of shock life will i have?

thank you

Yes lowering springs will shorten the travel of the shocks, thus causing premature failure. Usually people that run lowering springs with OEM shocks can get a MAX of 10l miles. It also depends on how many miles you have on them to begin with.
