Cheap suspension

Hey everyone, I am new to autocrossing and this site, and I was wonndering if anyone could help me with some suspension questions that I have. The shocks are going out on my 1993 325is and I would love to replace them as well as the springs. I would like a good suspension for the street and for autocross; I was thinking something that I could adjust the camber with on the front end and put lowering springs on. My biggest problem is cubic money, and I would like to be able to purchase all of this for around 750 dollars. Any help would be appreciated.

I just rebuilt the front suspension on my daughters 1995 325i sedan and I know $750 wont go far with what you want to do. A completely stock part rebuild set us back a little less than $800 and I get parts cut rate. As Whiteshark says Google is your friend and you may find some hot rod struts and springs there but money will be an issue. Good luck..

Depends what components you want to replace. Check eBay for oem parts and for struts/shocks look into turnermotorsport.
