I purchased a full M3 rear with swaybar several months ago. i am still unclear about a few things:

1. what has to be modified, if anything, to use a non-m suspension?

2. what change is there to offset?

3. Titaniumcranium said that adjustable camber arms are needed. How far off will the camber be without them?

4. i know the driveshaft has to be shortened, but are there any alternatives that will work? or are adjustable?

On a 2000 328. Any help is greatly appreciated!

That's all well and good, but shouldn't you have researched this before buying the suspension?

i did research before i bought it and was under the impression that everything would be fine. Since then i have been reading and there has been a lot of confusion on the things i have listed. I will make it work regardless, but want to be as prepared as possible because i only have access to a lift for a couple of days.

for those looking to do this project- it will cost about $1400 if you get a decent deal on parts. $2000 if you replace all mounts, bushings, and ball joints.

Just curious-
If you go with the $2000 cost of parts as indicated by Snipez4664; how much would installation/labor cost by a Indy?

Just want an idea of what someone has paid for the labor after having the parts that Snipez4664 listed.

Thanks.
