Let me just start by stating that I am an amateur mechanic who is trying to save some money by fixing my e36 myself. On with my question, I own a 1995 325i convertible which is in need of some new suspension gear. I am planning on purchasing some new struts and shocks to outfit my car. My question is, which or how can I tell what kind of suspension does my car have? What I mean is, what should I be buying, sport or heavy duty shocks and struts? My car still has the original 15'" stock rims, but I am planning on putting on some 18 inch rims. What type do you folks recommend? Thanks in advance for any advice.
