If I redo the suspension on my 92 325i.. aside from the sport shocks and lowering springs.. is there anything else that I should buy that I might want to replace along with them? (bushings.. washers..etc.) I dont know much about.. anyof these parts..any recco's?

BTW.. I think Im going for the Bilstein Sports with Eibach Pro Kit Lowering Springs.. any ideas for better products in the same price range?

You may want to change the shock and strut mounts while you are at it.

I don't know what your mileage is or your driving conditions, but for an E36 that old, definitely change out the rear trailing arm bushings, if you haven't already. Also replace the rear shock mounts. The front strut mounts don't wear as easily, so that would be your call. Then the front control arm bushings. Check your front ball joints as well (outer & inner), but it would be a lot easier to change out the whole control arm, as they usually come with the ball joints pre-installed.
