okay so as some of you may know, my car is currently riding on just eibach springs (not something i did, previous owner) i guess the only good knews is, they were put on right before he sold the car. anyways these slammed my car and i really dont like it, and my camber/toe is really negative and cannot be fixed with how low my car is. So i found a set of stock e36 m3 springs for cheap and am wondering if i can put them on my 325 strut (i know my car will sit way higher than my eibach springs, but will this work? will the m3 springs make the car sit higher than factory 325 height?

Thanks for the help

David

Ps, this is only until i have enough money to buy a spring/shock suspension set up...

I was looking at doing something like this as well. As far as I know you can do the swap but you'll need the spring hats/perches from an M3 because the springs are larger. I heard it should lower your car by about 0.5 inches.

they should fit, and no it will be a bit lower than stock 325 height, its only like a 0.5inch drop but all in all you should have no trouble.

There are a few major differences between M3s and none M suspensions... and springs were not the exact difference... in mounting that is. they are different in rates.. and height... but mounting is the same.. the only part that is different around there is the sway bar mount... its up not down on Ms...
