Where can i buy adjusters/perches for my eibach springs?

So i recently purchased a e46 and the previous owner has eibach springs on them. Since I am on a budget right now, i was wondering if there's any places/websites that I can purchase the adjuster/perch like what the coilover conversion kits have?

The car is sitting way too low for me.

If this is what you mean http://store.bimmerworld.com/coilove...kits-p113.aspx you'd be looking at spending $400.
The budget option is to buy a used OM non sport set http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=791174 and sell your Eibachs.

where can you get those spring pads at?

do you take the springs out and put them them right under the springs?

i read that rear m3 shocks/springs will fit but the fronts wont...is there anyway you can make them fit?
