My Ride: 2005 325 XIT
Coil Springs

I have a 2005 325 XIT that we purchased about a year ago for my wife. We discovered that it has blue colored coil springs and that the car is lowered. We would like to get the car back to stock. Better ground clearance and ride. ( car sits real low and rides stiff, handles like it's on a rail though) I have been looking for used stuff on EBAY but not sure what fits. Looking for aftermarkets but it seems like they are all lowering. Can I use the same shocks and just change the springs?Click image for larger version

I have been searching Ebay and found several coil spring auctions, none of the sellers can tell me if their parts fit my car. Can anyone provide me with a list of cars/models that have coil spring, both front and rear compatibility with my 2005 325 XIT?
