Putting springs on bmw 1998 328is

Hey everyone,
I have Heavy Duty Bilstein Shocks on my 1998 BMW 328is. I was wondering if you can put h&r sport springs on the car without changing the shocks to Bilstein Sports. I also want to know if you will have to install camber plates and if alignment may be needed. If you could tell me any other problems I may have in this process please let me know.

Any responses would be nice.

Thanks,
Ian

I'm pretty sure the H&R springs will work with the Bilstein heavy duty struts. You shouldn't need camber plates. When I lowered my E39 I had -.5 degree of camber in the rear after alignment and it was neutral in the front. Yes, you will need a 4 wheel alignment.

I agree with BimmerE39.....The H&R Sport Spring is used for
Moderate Lowering, so using it with an HD or Sport Bilstein strut should not make a difference.......also the camber is not affected because the Sport Spring used for moderate lowering.....check out the info on all 3 H&R Springs: just scroll down on link below......
