This could be a good time to upgrade with aftermarket

I am not one hundred percent sure but I do believe that the rear of the ti is different than any other e36. You may be able to sub e30 rear springs. I would either go after market or just call vines automotive in Al and get some used stock springs.

I'm pretty sure that the ti uses the e30 rear suspension. Hit up 318ti.org Its the place to be if you have a ti
