How much did you lower it by? I am going to do my e36 on the weekend, was it relatively easy? Im handy with the tools, so i assume it wont be too bad. Any tips?

Cheers

yer do the front first and be carefull when you take the top off the strut as if the spring clamps arent wound down enuf it will shoot off,i learnt from experiance it was bloody scary, but apart from that you just need brut strnght to loosen the bolts
