I recently did H&R lowering springs, bilstein sports.. love the combo, but I find that when im cruising at 85+ and encounter some rough road, it feels like my car is being bounced around too much- To the point where im nervous, so naturally i slow down.. I want my car to handle like it did off the factory floor (well as close as possible w/ a lowered set-up). What needs replacing here? I dont need to go 85+, but it concerns me because I know my bimmer should eat up the road at high speeds, not be unstable..

The springs will get a little softer after a few hundred miles. There is sort of a break-in period. Besides, did you check all the bushings front and rear at the time of suspension swap? Worn bushings will make you car ride like an ancient truck . And what about the ball joints? You didn't mention what size and kind of wheels you have. Too heavy and big wheels can be overwhelming for a non-M car. As for the factory-like ride, those days are gone baby .

yea i should mention that i have staggered 17" M wheels too.. I used to have a 95 318 with the exact same lowered set-up and that thing would tear up the twisties. I know the "factory" plush ride is gone, but the car should handle better, especially when pushing it. I am taking her to BMW today..Thanks man, later
