My Ride: 2000 323i sedan
99 323i e46 rear spring replacement OEM extra hands = small jack

Just wanted to say that I did it alone and it was easy. Hardest part was getting the rear jacked up since it was my first time. I had a spare jack from an old civic laying around which i placed between the wheel assembly and the body. Just make sure there is no contact with any of the various rubber hoses and lines in the area. And obviously don't place the jack on any soft spots... use common sense!

NOTE:I had a hard time finding the torque specs for my car, so instead i used the specs from some 330ci which was 74lb-ft, i torqued to 78 just incase.

I need to replace a rear spring, never done it before.

Could you tell me the steps, please.

Thanks
