I finally have broken down, and i am going to purchase a new suspension. I think that the H&R Cup suspension will be great for my price range. What do you guys think for a suspension below $800?

i also am wondering about how much it would cost to have it installed?

Cup kit is good if you're going for the "slammed" look. It has a massive drop. And it's also fairly inexpensive.

If you want performance go with some koni sports or bilsteins and some H&R race springs.

Yea i would agree with kevin on this. The H&R Cup kit will slam your car (2.1" drop in front and 1.7" in the back). If you want a moderate drop id go with the H&R sport springs and bilstein shocks. Together the price is around $680.

Hrmm... I think, instead of "unless", 97alpine meant to say "if".

if you just some mechanic to do it ie. not getting a hookup on it. Then if its springs and struts look at $300-$400 if he's not trying to screw you at all.

all pricing aside. any coilover kit will give you a great look .. but the best ones out there for coilovers are the ground control coilovers and the bilstein pss and pss9 coilovers..

i was faced with the same problem and in the end i went with a set of Bilstien sports shocks and struts. and H&R springs.. needless to say im very pleased and happy with everything.

Strange, non of you guys have eibach? I have the pro kit with bilstein sport shocks and struts and the car handles great. It rides pretty smooth and the lowering is exactly where I want it. By the way, if you're planning to do it yourself, its not as bad as you think. It's a 3.5/5 with five being the hardest if you try it yourself. (I think yours an e36 325 right?)

Booyashaka!!!
