Hey. I've got an '86 325e and I have recently got some used H&R sport springs. I've got quotes from several shops and the cost for an install is too much for me. I wanna give it a shot myself. Any special tricks or techniques to make the install easy? Any tools that I will need to buy/rent?
Thanks

the rears are very easy, the fronts can be tricky if you dont have previous experience. look for tech articles around the internet, that would help you the most. although you should be getting new shocks aswell, h&r sports are enough to blow you current shocks if they are stock or just replacements to your stock ones. and when replacing the shocks you should deffinately get new rear shock mounts.
