The first owner of my car (I'm the fourth) installed some "performance" springs to drop the front ride height for about 60mm. I want the ride height back up to where it's supposed to be, but when I took the wheel off and checked the sticker on the shock absorber strut, it said the following:
SACHS BOGE |
11 1500 115 268
31.31-1 090 716.1
The 31 31 1 090 716 being the part number for the strut. I checked and those struts belong to E36 318. What the heck, should I get new springs for 318, then, even though my car is 325? Would 325 springs even fit the 318 strut assembly?
Any other tips? Should I replace anything other than the springs themselves while I'm at it? (I'd prefer not to replace the struts, new ones are expensive.)
