sp0rky is an unknown quantity at this point
hello all

my car seems to still ride pretty decent givin its age and mileage (123k) but i think it might be time to do new shocks.

I definately want to go with bilstein, i hear great things about them. The ride that i am going for is as close to the e39 w/ sport package as possible. I drove a few high mileage e39s w/o sport package and they were comparable to mine, so i figure the ride i want shouldnt be too hard to achieve.

My question is would the bilstein sport shocks be the ones to do this? or is there better choices, also do i HAVE to lower my car to put on "sport" shocks? they all look like their designed for lowering.

thanks guys.

no you dont have to lower the car for bilsteins. The shock for stock ride height would be the Bilstein HD's which have the same damping as the Sports
