e30 suspension set-up
 
Bilstein Sport shocks/struts
Eibach springs

Is this a good combo? Anybody bought anything from shox.com and shipped to ontario?
did you pay gst/pst and courier brokarage fee?

Thanks

Its a decent combo. I have it, I like it.

It's the middle road of E30 setups. Good quality, good ride comfort, decent rates, nice raked appearance. I say go for it.

OK. What is this OBX set-up you guys talking about? Is oit coilover etc? How much do they run for? Since I am there I might as well learn more.

If you want coilovers get ground control, fk , kw, or something of the sort. I've been in an e30 with eibachs and bilsteins, stiffer than the b+g i had, but way softer than the fk i have now. If you want a better than stock but still comfortable set up the eibachs are a good choice. OBX is a coilover but it is made for the e36 then modified to fit e30

Jon@Bimmersport 01-18-2004 08:17 PM

i got my coilovers for $220, and like $80 install so 300 installed. they arent as soft as ppl think, from #'s ppl say they are. but really...why would u want really stiff for the streets of toronto? our roads SUCK..and if u have too stiff u run the risk of skidding out in the rain, and hopping if u go around corners...remember, you may have soft coilover rates..but what about when u do all the bushings to urethane? roll cage? sways? it stiffens everything up...and then u got stiff ass springs...wats the point? its not like your going hot lapping around toronto.

e46_lover, where did you get e46 coilovers for 220 ?!??!!

notmpowered 01-18-2004 09:20 PM

They are not e46 coil overs, they are on his e30. Where in gods name installed them for 80 bucks? If I could get them done for that cheap i wouldnt bother doing it myself.

Jon@Bimmersport 01-18-2004 09:30 PM

from bimmersport..it was $80 for that cuz he discounted me, cuz i had a whole bunch of other shit installed at the same time....
