Hi all, great forum!

Having just purchased a 1991 e36 320i I've found the suspension is somewhat knackered. I've had a look around your helpful forum and the usual suspension manufacturers websites and am now somewhat confused.

Is it correct that the e36 between late 1991 and early 1992 had different suspension struts to later models? And as such is it true that aftermarket kits for the later models will not fit the 1991-1992 e36?

If this is true does anyone know of a reasonably priced kit for the early models to replace both dampers and springs. I'm not looking for anything too hard or lowering the car by much, nor do I need adjustability. Was going to go for a SPAX VSX kit however SPAX only list 1992 and onwards. There is a spring kit for 1990-1992, but I need dampers too.

Can anyone offer any advice or know of any kits for the 1991 e36?
