$1200 OBO for the full kit. Barely used. Only 4 months.

Includes the following.

Bilstein front and rear Sport dampers
H&R STG II Sport (red) - 1.5"/1.0"
H&R front and rear sway bars - 28mm / 21mm (2 way adjustable front/back)

No rust on any of the parts. Very new condition.

This came from a 318, but will work on 6 cyl as well, not M3.

The retail prices are as follows.

$450 H&R springs
$900 Bilstein SP dampers
$700 H&R Sway bars

That's over $2000 retail, and these are barely used and maintain a lifetime warranty.

I'm really tempted.............Do you have pics?

Next week I was planning on sending the money for Koni SA shocks. But I get sway bars in this package and springs.

This is the only pic I've got. As you can see, I even rust proofed the springs myself.

This was taken a few months ago. As you can see, the condition is flawless.

Will part.

H&R front and rear sways (set), comes with PU bushings - $400 (retails for ~$700)
H&R Sport 318 springs (red) - $250 (Retails for over $450 + tax)
Bilstein SP Front shocks (pair) - $250 (retails for $380 + tax)
Bilstein SP Front struts (pair) - $400 (retails for ~$700 + tax)

All parts are barely used. Less than 4 months old and comes with a lifetime warranty, proof of purchase provided.

BTW, rear shocks will fit all E36's (excluding M3), front struts will fit all E36's (excluding M3) but are valved for a 318 front suspension.

H&R springs are for 318, but again, will fit all E36's (excluding M3)

Sway bars will fit any E36 and are meant for 6 cyl models. But they are adjustable, so it will work well on 318, 325, 328, M3, etc.

IE shock mounts w/ Urethane bushings selling for $100. (Retail $160 + tax)

Thanks,

Bryan

so, will adjustments have to be made to the front struts in order to fit a non-318???

None, it will fit all non M3's, it's just the front will be slightly lower because of the weight difference. The rear weighs the same.

i think you mean rear shocks?

too bad the set is for a 318, if it was for a 6cyl i'd throw you an offer..

Dunno what you mean. The rear shocks are exactly the same, the fronts are different only because the 318 engine is lighter than the 325 engine. Sway bars are the same.

I doubt it, you'll just get a slightly lower ride. I used the 318 struts on my car and removed more than 80lbs from the front end. It still handled great. I don't even think you'll notice that it's lower.

i mean you posted that you have front shock and front struts, i think you meant rear shocks and front struts.

i know the rears are the same and the fronts are different. if they were for 325 i'd give you an offer is what i meant.

i'm pretty sure the early 92's have different setup and these wouldn't fit.

yea im aware of that, but then again im going to check everything and see if he did put the update kit on it.

Autotechnica

Oh yeah forgot about that. The '92's have strut mounted sway bars. You will need to find Bilsteins that have the tabs welded into them. So you will need '92 specific struts.

BTW, you could just mount the sways to the control arms instead. There are no issues with the strut fitment though.

It's not an update kit. Only the '92 E36's and M3's use struts with tabs for the endlinks.

I'm a bit confused.

All Bilstein sports fit 93+ e36's? What's that mean?

There are Bilstein struts designed for '92 E36's which have the tabs on them. Reguardless, the '92 and '93+ Bilstein sports will fit all E36's (excluding M3).

What's the difference with STGII H&R? The difference between that and what? Stock?
