I have been bored lately and have just been doin little here and there mods, but I plan on getting nice springs for my car. I'd like to lower it about 1"-1 1/2" comfortably. What is a good spring? I've heard people swear by H&R. But Is Ebaich any good? Any other options? used
I had H&R's on my car, Eibachs on my 3000GT TT, they are both nice, but H&R's on the BMW are extremely nice. If you want to stiffen the ride a little bit and lower it you need to get H&R Performance Springs or the H&R Race Springs The performance springs are decent, give you the closest drop to what your lookin for, and the Race springs are a little more of a drop and can be pretty stiff. Either set, I would not recommend staying with your factory OEM struts. Get a set of Bilstein Sport struts. They're what I used and are awsome.

I've had both Eibach Pro kit and H&R sport on my E36. Hands down H&R's are the better springs. Eibach's are now made in US and H&R's are still made in Germany. Eibach springs have softer spring rates than the H&R's and are more progessive. Eibach's also cost more for some odd reason. Anyways, H&R!
I can push my car at least 15-20km/h faster in a certain corner near my house with the H&R springs. There was a lot more roll with the Eibach springs.

I agree with 620, try to always replace shocks and springs together. No one I trust recommends mixing and mismatching factory shocks or springs, with stiffer aftermarket or M-Spec shocks or springs. Replace both with a matched set that will complement your style of driving on the street and/or track!
