www.fknorthamerica.com for the springs <--- get the 60/40 drop

Shocks.. look up Koni or Boge

for shocks, I would definately go bilstein.

Miguel, how much were your springs? I'm thinking of either switching to those or Ground Control coilover sleeves

Springs are about $280Can (thats including taxes + shipping)
as for GC, all I know is that they can seriously dump an E34....

..just watch out for scraping your control arms

I would stay away from KONI's and BMW's!!
I've heard too much bad reviews with the two!!
i would either go BILSTEIN, FK, or GC!!
They KNOW what they're doing!

KONI's are really stiff. The only thing that will lower your car an inch is the H&R stage I OE sport springs. See if they have an applications for your car. If not the only other option is to buy coil-overs.

Ummm, you realize Ground Control and I believe FK use Koni shocks/struts, so does TC Kline, all of which make really good BMW suspensions.....
