I'm ordering new shocks and springs soon ie this month. While I'm in there, what else should I replace as I'm sure it's still all stock? I would like to replace everything that is going out or could potentially going out but not sure what everything is :P My cars frame is of course a 95 325.

Other then shocks and springs, I'm getting TMS sway bars, xbrace and strut braces

You pretty much have it covered. I can't shed a lot of light on the situation (haven't really gotten into that area myself just yet-next on the list), but I can say that you have it pretty well covered if you're planning all of that. I was gonna say new bushings when you mentioned shocks, but if you're replacing sways, they will come with new ones.

I will say that shit is always ten times more difficult for me, damnit. I was adding a Dinan strut tower, and now am having three kinds of hell getting it done. I always read "only took about fifteen minutes....yeah right. Of course my bolts didn't line up perfectly, and now am gonna have to yank by shock out on one side, redrill the holes on the spring hat, and then replace. Shit always has to be complicated for me ghead .

I mention this, just so you take that into consideration when you go to add all this. Make sure your tower mounts will line up, before you get it all back together.
