I'd like to know what they are too, they came on the parts car. They are made in the US and I have yet to measure the offset.
Anyway, I made it home without an issue (which i found hard to believe) and drove the car all summer last year. The suspension needed a huge rebuild, most every bushing on the car is shot and in need of replacement.
Here she is back home resting for a bit and getting an oil change, next on the agenda was to swap in a set of M3 brakes (from euroguy) and the Bilstein/H&R front suspension.
Unfortunately I lost a bunch of pictures last fall, so I'm not sure if they'll turn up somewhere ever. Anyway, I didn't do a whole lot with the car last fall other than the M3 brake swap and the front suspension. As you can see here it really helped the look of the front to drop it.
This is how it sat before I put it away for the winter, new paint this spring I hope. I'm going with Hellrot, not much of a change but I like the look of any Hellrot e36 I've seen.
Here it is as it sits right now. I have the rear suspension dropped and I'm redoing some bushings. I need to get it back together pretty quick, the next month or so should be fun.
Here is a sneak peak at some bushings I machined in the past few months, there are more to come. I will update here.
Subframe bushings, I thought about making these out of Delrin (I still might make Delrin ones, solid should be fun anyway)
I needed new front control arm bushings, so I made these: the insert is delrin
