Mastercylinder is installed only have to redo all the hydrolic lines :(
also arived treehouse controll arm bushings
and i think i gone use my M3 offset tower bushings up front
still have to look what kinda rim i can drive up front,i real would like to drive my 18x9 as well but i think it wont work so i guess i have to look for some replice #67 style in a 18x8 or 18x7.5

What kind of suspension is it andre?
09-28-2008, 12:51 PM

yep you are right and the shocks are adyustable 16-32 steps front and rear lol puttuing that sucker in right now, i was ordering the remote adyustment kit as well and then noticed that i cant mount the motors on the shock no room in a touring there that real sucks ass im a bit upset, i think i gone make some room as i orderd that unit yesterday night. lol the grinder my best friend i'm kidding with that lol but somehow i can make some room i think

You're going to need some kind of camber plates because your front camber is going to be bad. FYI.

!!!!!Now I need Some Help !!!!
ok i did a moke up today with the suspension and all my parts lol
looks pretty good i think i have on there right now 9x18 offset i think is 22
with a balling tire 255/40/18
i think it looks fricking sweet but the problem is the rear off the tire is exactly on the edge from the fender and touching.
Now i was thinking do i try a diff. tire or do i go with a aftermarket copy whell same style but smaller or do i go out and by the Sport Evolution M3 Fenders they are made to fit 18"
but the time i dont like to put much more money in that setup as i spend more then i wanted alredy lol
can you guys give me any tips what i should do i could try but i think thats money down the drain like i said wanne watch my budged now or i dont get a paint job done in the winter
09-29-2008, 08:28 PM
Jesus, 255 will track like crazy. A bit biggish for a relatively stock e30. Get a smaller wheel, like a 8 inch width and it will fit. M3 Sport Evo fenders aren't that much bigger, barely have a inch wider in real life. Try a smaller width tire if you go with Evo fenders.
09-29-2008, 08:36 PM
i toke a look evo fender are exactly 3.5 cm longer towards the door and yes i was not planing to drive a 255 up front
what tire would fit on the rim what i have right now i thought about stretiching the tire
what would be posiable ????
what is the biggest what you guys now of in a conversion like this ?

Ok got a new tire today from tire23 in mississauga man wtf. was i thinking i was asking the guys there tu put the smallest tire on the fricking rim endet up with a 215/35/18
sweet yust wondering how that drives lol but we will see
here is a pic
and man i have plenty off room now no need for evo fenders so i can start and get the turbo rolling now

still have the car in my shop i think next week i have some time to do a allignment.
and second why do you ask ?? do you think it is way off ?
i think everything should be fine up front
i drove up front all the time 9x16 with a ET -5 on my old setup
10-01-2008, 11:30 PM
Its not really the wheels thats the problem, its that i'm pretty sure your toe would be off after installing the e36 stuff. I know this because I had done an front-end allignment before I did my 5lug swap and after I was done I had really bad toe out. It would also be good just to see how your front camber/caster compare to an stock e30 or e30 m3.

ok i will update that when i went for the allignment and let you know when not remember me about that
