Hello again all...
My car needs some suspension work and I was looking at puting together a package of Eibach Pro-Kit Springs with a set of Tokico Illumina's and new BavAuto High Perf. Rear Upper Shock Mounts. Swaybars would come later as this kit would pretty well use up my available budget for a while.
I can do all this for well under $1000 and can do most of the work in my driveway so I can save the labor except for the allignment afterwards.
Anyone have experience with a kit like this? Any other recommended kits? The budget needs to stay below $1000 and I don't want to do any real modification to make something work.

This is for my '86 325e with Dinan ECU upgrade, so the car can move and I want a sporting suspension that I can use for the occasional SOLO II events but doesn't punish me on the open road. I have had Eibach's and Tokico's on previous cars I have owned (RX7's primarily) and was thrilled with the improvement in overall performance and handling, which is why I thought of that combo first.

Ideas? Suggestions?

Thanks alot

I use tokico HP blues and matched lowering springs and love em. Bought them from a wholesaler on ebay for under 400 including shipping.
Use the money you saved and buy the eibach swaybar kit. Can pickup that eibach kit for around $300.
Thats the ticket.
