Help with suspension!!! Please!!! 2001 BMW 740i

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum. Been searching on here for a while but never posted anything. Its great to know there are other passionate E38 owners in GTA. (740ill I have read your posts a lot and they are great).

I have read the two threads about the suspension upgrades, with the Bilstien shocks and H&R or Eibach spring setup. I am in desperate need of a suspension upgrade hence the reason for this new post. I couldn't find the Bilstien shocks in the sites that were linked in the previous posts. I believe I need struts in the front. My car has EDC and SLS which I will be eliminating during the upgrade.

Also i have been hearing a lot about the NEX coilovers on BF. Does anyone have any suggestion or experience with them? Cost on ebay is around $850 plus $125 shipping to Canada. Not sure though if that is what i should throw on.

Also last question is to the people that have lowered the car, what did you guys do about the alignment. Who did you go to? I am going to change all the shocks and springs but plan on only lowering in the front. I think the rear sits perfect on my 18s so don't plan on touching them. I would still like to have some tire life.

Any help at all will be greatly appreciated. Too nervous about putting up some pics because the car looks like crap right now. Will post pics in the future.
