If the drop is not what IM after, Ill consider moving them on, and then go for Coilover.

I just don't have enough experience with coilovers in how they operate, how to set them up, what additional issues may come with fitment etc, and really didn't want to have to buy spacers.



I haven't fitted coilovers but from what I have read a 5mm spacer is normally all that is needed for the front to clear the shock and spring

Hi, cheers for that, I got quotes circa £180 this morning for a rear shock, I remember when I refreshed my E36 M3, Billys all round were £600 vs £1000 for Sachs OEM.

The best deal was the B12 kit for the E46 I got a year or so ago for £750 for springs and shocks, that's a winner.

I'll check Larkspeed, but maybe see if there are my black Friday deals over the next 2 weeks. Cheer.

Cheers Dave, I would prefer shocks and springs, so Ill get the rears on when they arrive and have a think about the fitment, and the spring pads too ;0)
