Xi lowering springs alignment

Im lowering my xi this week and I can't seem to find any alignment specs on XI's. I am very familiar with cars, I rebuild old cars. Is this something I can do myself?

Are you talking about doing your own alignment? If you take it to a shop and have the car put on the rack they will give you a print out with all the proper alignemnt specs for your model car. I got a feeling the XI model is no different than a standard e46.

Probably best to use Sport suspension specs.
