I have a 98 528i and am interested in lowering it. What spring and shock combination will give me the lowest drop?:confused:

any coilover kit should give you a significant drop

Apex springs usually have the lowest drop after settling, Coilovers would be your best bet.

I can get you both, give me a call at the shop and we can discuss you options.
