Since we get a few calls, PMs and emails about ST coilovers I thought I would create a thread with commonly asked questions.

What is the warranty?
5 year warranty

How low can I drop my car?
Varies by Model
Lowering front: 0.8"-3.1" / 20-50mm
Lowering rear: 0.8"-2.6" / 20-50mm

Does it work on E39 models with the Sport Suspension kit?
Yes. Additional front axle assembly parts for vehicles with EDC are required from the automobile manufacturer. Front: (BMW Part#:dome bearings 31331091709+ washer 31331116983+ collar 31331110196) rear: dome bearings

How do you adjust the height once installed?
You will have to remove your wheels. When adjusting the vehicle height, it is important to make sure that the threads are clean and free of debris. After initial cleaning, move the perch by 10mm downwards, and then clean the area that you desire to adjust the perch (up or down). For the rear you will remove the perch from the vehicle to adjust the height.

Do I have to modify anything to install ST coilovers?
No these are a direct bolt on

Can I use these on my daily in the snow?
ST coilovers have a zinc plated strut housing. This helps prevent corrosion from road grim and salt.

Will these rust?
The chances are very slim. Due to the zinc coating it prevents corrosion and maintains durability of the housing.

Are these better than KW coilovers?
STs are equivalent to KW V1s. ST's carry a different warranty and housing. Some KW models offer dampening control when ST coilovers do not. STs come with pre-set dampening by the KW engineers in Germany.

Do you ship to Canada?
Yes we do but free shipping does not apply. We do offer HIGHLY discounted shipping rates.

What is the cost of ST coilovers?
$976 for all four corners

If you have any questions not answered here please let me know.

Great post Guys... Would be good if you could post world-wide shipping rates, this might help international members budget for your products!

For example - Do you have a full set for an E38 1996, 2.8i, and shipping cost to United Kingdom?

Eso es todo!

ST Part # for the E38 is 90215

Unfortunately I cannot ship these outside of North America due to my vendor contract with ST. You will need to find a freight forwarder.
