Hey, i have a 1995 325is, and I am looking to install new springs this week.
First off, I was planning on getting H&R's, any big diff between those and Eibach?

The main question I have is, since it is a 10 year old car (130k miles), should I be installing new shocks or struts at the same time, at some point, or at all?

Is it a good idea to install springs alone on an older BMW, or will I risk having the shocks go shot.

Thanks for the help.

-aFe Intake-
-Tint/Clear Corners-
-H&R Springs-
....More to come....

if they're orginal, just get new shocks too :P

i mean if the budget allows it go with it

why act cheap on the cost of your safety ?
