My friend has just lowered his WRX by swapping the stock springs...
Anyone know if his spares will fit a 318is '94 - rather than try to fit them or contact Subaru again I thought I would ask here first as some of you have good WRX contacts
btw, his Subaru dealer said "suck it and see" and another said "probably"
This is a free set of springs which MUST be better than the stock '94 ones I have in my girl if they will fit...they might even lower the car a little
Can anyone help...I know it's a long shot but hey, if you dont ask...

haha damn man do you know anything about cars? there's a reason the springs were made for a WRX and not* BMW. *sigh* why the hell would you even want to put some rice springs on a BMW??/ that's a no no man.

I personally think it's one of the dumbest ideas ever. Aside from the suspension travel issue, the WRX has a different weight distribution, which affects spring weight, on top of which the WRX has a different suspension layout so it's not even guaranteed that the springs will be the right diameter, let alone the right weight or length or progressiveness, etc.

* is wrong with you guys. BlackBMW your language is bang out of order, if you can't say something without the aid of expletives best you put a sock in it, AND you American boys, you're not banging down doors in Falluja here you know, try being a little more open minded a little less racist (NyteRyda) and whole lot more constructive.
Perhaps whoever the hell is supposed to be monitoring this string should like to say something here or perhaps I should just go look for a forum where like minded people want to help each other without the need for making them feel stupid. * *
