I lowered the front about 1.5 inches and changed my spacer today and it made it worse. I'm going to removing the endlink like you suggusted but getting frustrated. Because it looks so good and rides nice just sounds really getto.

So attempted to install my racelands on my 330ci. Ended up breaking the bolt off in the lower clamp due to the SH1TTY welds on that little pin preventing it from tightening all the way... So now I gotta get a new steering knuckle and grind down that pin some I guess. Ughhh so frustrated.

BUT it looked so sick when I put my m68 wheel on and 20mm spacer in front... might need to roll my fenders, sooo close to rubbing when i turned the wheel. 30mm spacer in the rear is gonna look insane, haha.

Got mine on today... Rides 500 times better than stock my 330ci had 200k on the stock stuff so it was blown out. I got no rear bounce out of mine but I've got the rokkars so maybe there's a slight difference there.

This is with about 4 thread on the coils left. 20mm spacers and m68s on the front. You'd need to roll your fenders for this though...
Rear's aren't done btw.

That looks good might have to pick some up... And I've got access to a professional fender roller so that part isn't a big deal.
