need more info i think to be able to get the best response. Daily driver only? Do you plan on racing it in either Autocross or lapping?

Do you want OEM or performance shocks? If performance, do you want OEM ride height, or lowering springs?

if OEM and your budget is low, I'm sure you can find a used set at a scrapyard or from someone on the board who has upgraded (i've got my old set for a 1992 325i if you want - not sure if they're the same as for a 325is but I can check).

if you want performance, look at Koni or bilstein shocks & H&R or eibach springs but that will be more $$

Based on you low budget, I would stay away from coilovers, but that's also an option if you want to spend more.

Good luck!

Is it the shocks or is it balljoints and control arm bushings. What peices of your suspension need replacing ??
