E36 m3 suspension

I was wondering, i have the H&R race on billsteins now on my car.

How would the car sit if i had M3 springs on Billstein shocks & 18" wheels


I was also wondering to just buy the springs & shocks so it would be an easier swap...
heres how it sits on current setup (too low in front for me)

the car would sit at stock height. it doesnt matter what shock you are using. the springs determine ride height. and shocks ride quality...until you get into coil oiver systems and such. but if you want to go stock...im willing to trade!! e36 m3 with 80km! im looking to get the bilstein shocks! ps car looks sick

if you read up on the springs it gives an approximate drop. and its pretty acurate. on my m3 the front is higher than the rear. the rears are tucked into the wheel well. while in the front there is about an inch of a gap. maybe a bit less

How about putting some thicker spring pads in up front? I think you can gain almost a full inch by going to the super thick pads.
