A lot of progress...

I finished installing the new suspension on my cabrio. I am running Ground Controls (Eibach springs) and Koni SA shocks. I am also using the GC rsm's. The spring rates are 450 front and 600 rear (a tad stiffer than stock ). I am very excited and love how they turned out. I also put on some 16X7 BBS RX's with 205/50/16 Bridgestone Potenza RE750.

Some other new stuff that still needs to be installed are a SSk (2.5L Z4 lever), E30 M3 ebrake boot, and SS Brake lines (DOT approved from Turner).

Thanks. I ordered the Ground Controls from their local shop. The design and produce there stuff about 45 mins away from me. They also have a website www.ground-control.com. The trim piece comes standard on e30 cabrios.

I can go about 2" lower in the front and 1/2" lower in the rear.
