My Ride: 330i Sport
WTB Rear suspension

I have rubbing on the rear arches so Im getting them rolled and im also looking at a coilover kit for the rear only (for now) with some adjustability and the comfort/ride comparable with the sport suspension I have now?
What would anyone recommend? im not looking for full kit and im not looking for full racing setup just a replacement comparable with the sport suspension.

Which supplier sells split front and rear kits? which setups are good

You don't want to mismatch like that...especially when going with an adjustable setup in the rear. Either get sport shocks all around, or coilovers all around.

Agreed. If you're going to switch, do the whole thing.

It is always best to change them all around. Just like tires, you do not want to miss-match. It will set off your car's balance. The ST coilovers fit into just about everyone's budget. Let me know if I can help you out with a quote.
