Megan Racing Euro Series Coilovers 90' 520i
Ordered a set of megan racing coilovers for my 90' 520i turbo... havent found any info on the megan coilovers on so im going to get some pics of the install and give some details about stance and performance for the other e34 owners out there.... coilovers coming soooon!! :)
I'm interested to hear your opinions.
I'm planning on ordering a set of BC Racing for my '90 535i.
Any reason why you chose Megan?
I got a good price, just under 800 bucks shipped... as well... a friend told me that he knows someone with an e30 who had good experiences with them
ha no idea they were made by BC Racing.... but its seems to be a good things to back up the quality of manufacturing :) thanks for the info
Got them in!!
not showing a step by step for the rear shocks because they install the same as a stock one! Three nutz on top and the one big bolt on the bottom....
I have only installed the rears but you can get an idea of the stance...
Meh. Looks pretty shitty to be honest.
Only way to salvage this disaster is with some 17s.
just took the front struts out... quick description/how to :P
i like to loosen off the top the bolts for the strut mount
remove the brake caliper with bracket and hang it aside, i used some wire...
*** dont forget to remove the pad sensor on the driver side caliper as well as unhook it from the strut
unbolt the sway bar link
remove allen bolt on disc and remove the disc
remove the three bolts holding the strut to the (forget them name.... but the part that connects the control arms to the strut housing)
wiggle the strut back and forth and the strut should slide out and just undo the strut mount nutz the rest of the way and the strut should come right out :)
alrighty.... i got the coils off the struts and i cut the housings!!
first thing i did was compressed the coils with a $30 coil compressor from princess auto :)
Then i removed the top strut nut
pulled off the nut, washer, strut mount and spring
remove the strut insert collar, i used the tool in the picture and "gently" nudged the collar loose :)
and everything apart!
gunna be about a week for the welding to happen as my friend has the flew sooo im gunna wait till hes better
sorry I forgot about this thread :s
suspension is all set up and installed getting pics now :)
sadly I don't have pics of the install but I have pics of the car with 15" basket weeves and 17" style 5's :)
exhaust is hangin a bit cu the hanger broke :P
video of driving with the 15" basket weeves with the new suspension here....
didn't know what to use for music soo don't hate :)
how is the ride quality? i was going to put these on my e36, its a really great deal especially because it comes with camber plates!
