Hello, I am needing a set of rear springs for my 1984 633 CSI. Cant find the proper soprings o raise the rear back up where they belong. Will the spring / shock combo on the 7 series interchange?? I have found some in a wrecking yard on a 1985 7 series with only 60,000 miles on it. If there are any other that will interchange please let me know, I am tired of the rear of my 6'er sagging.

I had the same problem as yours with my 323i. Just go around to local junkyards (Pick n Pull) and your bound to find a good pair of shocks. I found a pair of bilsteins for mine.

well i went to the pick and pull and had to choose between the rear shocks from a 733 and a 533. Bought the 733 ones and they will have to be taken back off and go get the ones off of the 533. The 7 series shocks are about 1 1/2" too long and raise the car up more than expected. I love the firmnest of the larger coils but my baby aint a drag car with the rear bumper 5" higher than the front.
