Post e36 coupes check rear coil springs

Hi every one, i would just like to say that most e36 coupes have a problem with the rear coil springs breaking and can cause rattling.If you have found this happening to your coupe change both coil springs not just the broken one.I hope this was helpfull.

Just a small inclusion on the above good advice: always change coil springs in pairs as a matter of course as you will also be a bit down on one side which will affect the handling etc.
