http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showpos...postcount=1073

People recommended stiffer springs but no mention of bump stops. I was thinking 285s would have fit. I decided to sell them instead. I wonder if they would have worked? At any rate, tire cost was a concern to me even though those pirelli tires offered awesome grip with that large contact patch.

My daily driver is really low in the front because of that heavy (relatively speaking ) b18c1 engine in the front. It actually gives my front wheels negative camber. Perhaps I may try that in the front.

BTW - How are they holding up on you car? Do you regularly check them to see if they are holding up? Also, is there something more secure than a zip tie? what do the pre-assembled ones use? Any idea? Do they simply have a hole in the middle?

Thanks for sharing. Great work.

Regards,
Loay Oweis

what do you mean by shaved the fenders? on the stock fenders there is a curve for the wheel arch and then it goes straight, perpendicular with the ground, at the end. are you talking about cutting that part off?

yes pulling is pushing the fenders outwards. shaving isnt a good idea, but it serves its purpose.


as for the bump stops they held up great but i sold the coils. they will be fine tho.

is cutting & shaving the same thing? from what i understand cutting = cutting the fender lip off so the inside of the fender is flatter than it would be if you rolled it.
