It seems like the consensus is that it will compress the strut by the amount of the drop. Is this necessarily a bad thing? Here's what another guy had to say on the e90Post...

@kaboo0m

Did you install these yourself? If so, can you confirm that these drop hats/spring perches do not in fact effect the height of the strut piston? Thanks.

Thanks for the replies.

@Kubica - Do you know they won't work from personal experience?

@BMWJunkie77 - Yeah, I'll probably end up getting some Eibachs. Just thought I'd save $250 if I could.
