The problem is the rear Raceland springs are not the advertised 300lbs, but 500lbs. And they're not exactly the same side to side. To make things much worse, the rear shocks are softer than OE BMW shocks. So there is no way the Raceland rear shocks can control those 500lbs springs. Thus that's why so many
posters report...."The rear is Bouncy". By the time you fix the rear problem, with a new set of springs & shocks, you might as well have purchased a quality product from one of our forum Sponsors. We still haven't talked about the problems with the front struts.........

Raceland:
Spring Rate: Front 350 lbs/inch
Spring Rate: Rear 300 lbs/inch......500lbs
Integrated front helper springs
Two year warranty.....with free replacement if properly installed by a licensed mechanic. So NO warranty if you install them.
