Suspension Questions

alright so my 330 is coming up on 140thousand...and the suspension is not up to par anymore.

I dont want to go any lower, because i figure lower will be more harsh, and i dont want that. The car was perfect at 50k..and i want it stock feeling.


plus the 318 is lowered and already kicks my 330s ass in handling.

so...whats coilover mean exactly? should i get coil overs? do they have coilovers that are stock height?

i dont want adjustable, because i was happy with the stock handling, no need to stiffen.


Need quality. might go with BMW shocks and springs.

what do you guys think?

what.
its nice out here right now. fuck...last week i nearly died walking from my car to my classes.



so bilstein Hd's will fit without lowered springs correct?

should i even bother to get new springs, is there a way to test if they are good or not. seems i get a little drop in the rear when i accelerate, that means i might need new ones right?

my friend's 330i back end "digs in" when you floor it (30k miles) should be fine...
Bilstein HD's are for Stock springs.
Bilstein Sports are for Lowering springs.

And yes it was hot... then again I was carring lead and glass....
