Dont bother doing the m3 suspention is what most will say, and after lookin into this more it makes more sence to get aftermarket parts.
Serge, I think you're right. Does seem like a lot of hassle for USED parts. The few hundred that it might save me probably isn't worth the hassle.
I would check out your shocks and see if they are busted. From what you have said I would think that they are, unless you are used to driving cars with aftermarket suspensions.
TheKid, the former owner said that he just replaced the suspension. He didnt' know what was replaced... just took it to a shop and they "took care of it." I haven't had the chance to look yet (It's still cold here!), but I can tell from the way it drives the suspension is not "broke." Yeah, I am used to driving stiff cars. Actually, my Porsche came from the factory in stock form with koni adjustables. But regardless, I have to say I'm disappointed with the e36 suspension. I think even the Mazda Protege has a better feel. For a daily driver, I don't need it to be so firm that I feel every bump on the road... but at the same time, I don't want to bounce after a dip in the road.
Right now, I think I might just bite the bullet and pay for H&R sport and Bilstein sport.
Does anyone know of a good progressive spring?
