What's up everyone. I have a 96 318IS sitting on 19 by8 in the front and 19 by 9.5 in the back. The car rides so smooth rite now, no rubbing unless someone huge is sitting in the back with a few bumps. Anyhow no one should be sitting back there anyway.
So, the car looks nice with these wheels, but boy would it look better lowered. Has anyone with these size wheels lowered there car? If so what setup did you go with? Any specs and/or clues would be great. I am pretty sure lowering can be done, I just want to know if anyone has done it before with this size wheel. I was looking into a set of Eibach Sport springs or H&R racing springs. I had H&R before and the were great not to bouncy and a smooth ride. Your input would be very much appreciated. Also Pictures are worth a thousand words. THANKS!
I dont want to lower it to much, like my other car. I was just looking to get rid of the gap in the front between the fender and wheel. Also it would look nicer to see it about 2 inches lower.
bavarian autosport makes a lowering kit for about 200 bucks that they say drops an e36 about an inch and a half. im gonna get it at some point. i would include a link to the item but links dont work with their site.
Well the car has new shocks all around, so I'm going to keep them until they blow. When I dropped my other car with new factory struts the ride was just perfect. The only thing that I am concerned about it the rear since it is such a wide rim 9.5 inches.
