You own a e36? The rears are easy cheesy. Although i'd recomend professinal installation Illg vei you the basic setup I think you need ot do. I dont own a e36.
Jack up the car.
Plce another jack under the hub/brake setup so it doesnt "dropp" all the wya down.
Heres where my vocabulary is fuzzy. Basically look at it. It's eays to notice that there is a screw connecting a arm to the shock/hub deal. After you remove that, there should be another one kinda behind it where the subframe I believe is connected. Remove it. All my vocab here is Fucked so please just look at it. Then after these are out, lower the jack that was under the hub till its in a full "droop" position. Then push down on the hub. You should be able to wiggle and shimmy it out. A broken rear coil is not uncommon. Make sure you watch what direction the plates attched to the top/bottom of the spring are facing.
To install push down on the hub. It iwll take strength. Then put the top of the spring in first and kinda play with the spring till u get it back in> Follow reverse directions to complete.
Drive it around your neighborhood for a bit for it to settle in. Look at ride height and it should look a bit taller than previously.
Good Luck and let us know how it turns out.
