Help choosing lowering springs
 
Hey I wanna lower my 330xi and I'm thinking on going with eibach pro kit springs but I really don't know what else to buy to get more low, and must have things to complete the job right. What are you guys running right now? Thank for any feedback

H&R race springs will get you lower and a flat stance any lower you might want to look at coil overs

It's good idea to replace your shocks as well. I say get coil overs.

Youll be driving around on blown shocks and your handling will be ****, lowering springs are great if you already have new shocks but if not youll need new shocks soon which combined with springs are gonna run you ~$700-800 at which point you might as well spend the extra $200-300 and get adjustable ride height and dampening control

Not true, you can run the lowering springs without worrying, you'll only spend about 200 or so on springs and just throw them on. It's a great deal for someone trying to lower their car without breaking the bank.

Where are you getting your info from?

You are absolutely wrong.

Mflara20 10-03-2012 09:44 PM

Who I should listen to?

ac_2007 10-04-2012 08:10 AM

Anyone but the guy saying to run lowering springs without changing stock shocks/struts.

Post a reasonable budget and you'll be pointed in the right direction.
Lowering a 330xi defeats the purpose of the car IMO.

Lowering springs without matching dampers will get you a bouncy ride to start with, and it will worsen with time until dampers actually fail.

Sorry if this post doesn't make sense. I am writing on a cell phone.

Mflara20 10-06-2012 09:20 PM

Where can I buy dampers from?

No, it won't, it'll obviously ride lower and generally will be stiffer than stock

Yeah. I currently have Vogtland Springs in my M3 for about 15-20k miles I would say they are pretty close to stock as far as ride quality at first but my ride quality has gotten worse over time. I just ordered some KW v2 coilovers should be coming in either friday or Saturday. I know they are pricey but it really is worth it in the end.

sneakingword 10-18-2012 02:15 PM

So basicallyy springs arent the way to go????????????
