Exclamation Lowering Springs

Which Ones.....

I've got a '94 325i that I'm gonna drop come spring.I want to give my car the lowest possible drop without going to coilovers.Any ideas or suggestions on makes i.e (H&R or Eibach).Will I have to change my shocks if I go with say the H&R race springs or Eibach Sportlines and what really is the difference between the two??
I'm also getting 18's in the spring so will I need to roll the fenders and if so is it expensive to do??

Thanks for your help guys,
Alfred

Well i experienced both worlds i guess. the Eibachs and currently have the H&R. I absolutely loved the eibach sportlines on my E36. The ride height was perfect, not too low, and not too high. As for the H&R race, i have them on my E46 and don't know if they are any different on the E36 cars. If they are the same then i would go for the eibachs. The ride height is awsome in the front, but the rear sits too high still...well for my liking i guess. For the h&R races i think you will need the shocks changed after a while cuz the ride is more harsh than the Eibachs. If i find a good deal on coilovers..im switching my H&R's. As for the fender rolling, I dodnt do any so i can't tell you much, but from what i've heard its no big deal of a job. Hope it helps. Unless it confused you even more.

Bliss,

I was kinda leaning towards the Eibach Sportlines cause they seem to give the most radical drop all around without the very stiff ride.

So you say the H&R race springs still sit to high in the back??Is your ride very stiff or can you live with it??

Yup, the car sits too high in the back. Its lower thank stock, but not low enough. I can definately live with the ride..its not too stiff. I personally loved the eibachs on my E36 though.
