Good lowering springs for stock struts



i just purchased a 1994 325 convertible and im looking to lower it, any and all advice and comments will be taken into consideration, i understand that coilvers are over 1000$ and dont have the money for it right now, so good springs would be fine

lol i know im gunna get bashed pretty hard for saying this..but..

if ur not gunna track ur car and take onramps at 120km/h..

go with raceland coilovers, my buddy has it in his 325is and it rides pretty comfortably , corners nicely ,almost like ur stock suspension and cost 400 bucks. and u can lower ur car pretty low too.
