Opinions on lowering springs...

Just wanted to see what anyone's thoughts were on either the Eibach or H&R lowering springs. I have an 89 e32, and am debating between the two. I like the drop height of the Eibachs a little better, but I know that H&R makes the OEM springs, so I tend to trust their engineering a little more. Any thoughts or experiences would be appreciated. I plan to add Bilstein Sport shocks and Dinan camber plates at the same time (and of course a good high-speed alignment). Thanks in advance!

Ive always liked the H&R on BMW. They seem to work well. On my 89 735i However I just lowered the frt and left the rear alone. I just hate how the e32's sit stock.
Good luck,

DT

I have the H&R springs and Eibach sport shock set up on my 88 E32. Must say I love it. Its a much more aggressive stance and ride. Handles much better than a 5000lb + vehicle should (iL version)

check it out in the gallery to see the stance. My wheels are Ikon 046 18x8 and 18x9 staggered w/ 235/40 and 265/35 tires. Give me your thoughts if you'd like

The "main thing" is to KEEP the main thing the MAIN THING
