I didn't need any other parts, but I did choose to upgrade the entire suspension when I was getting it done. So complete suspension refresh from the ground up, front and back.

No caster/camber kits were needed, just an alignment once it was all done.

The ride is great. Can't really speak for how it is in the snow as I do not drive my car in the winter. Clearance wise I have never had a problem, and I do have a front lip aswell.

I'm available to meet most evenings, just drop me a msg.

Is the price that much better in the group buy? Why the rapeage on shipping?

I got some great quotes from Essex in Vancouver for billys and H&R for the 5. Less than 1g with shipping.

The price in that GB are a LOT better, but he only ships free within the states. Luckily for me, I had a friend in Michigan that went back and forth, shipped them there and he brought them back to me, no duty or taxes.

But even to ship them from the border to Toronto would be less than $150, which still gives you a savings of $150-$200 from Essex

Nice. I have bilsteins all around with H&R Stage II's in the front 1.9" and I have Eibach's in the rear 1.3" and my buddy Dammerung has the same setup as you, and he claims the same stiffness with his, but when he rides in mine, he is in another world! We both drive 740iL's

Finally installed the shocks. Went with Bilsteins all around and stage 1 H&R. Had them on for about 1 week now. First off the good....the ride is amazing. It made me fall in love again with my car. The install wasn't too hard or complicated. Now for the bad.....I should have listened to Hardeep and went with stage 2. The rear sits absolutely perfect with a .6 drop. The fronts look like they are still at stock height with the big monster gap. People have told me that they need time to settle, but its been a whole week, almost. If anyone has experience please chime in. Overall very happy with the ride. Next step....cross driller rotors....
