Suspension question

A 2 part question for you suspension experts out there...

Will a 328i (E36) sport pkg springs and shocks fit on a 320i (E36)?

and

If this did fit would it lower the car at all compared to the stock setup of a 320i?

Thanks in advance,

Tim

yes it will, and it will lower it approx 0.59", depending on how saggy/used your current springs are, or the sport springs are.

Thanks for the reply!

Do you think this is a good swap from my 320i stock suspension to this 328i sport suspension?

My bet is that your springs have sagged at least half of the difference to the SP parts. I really don't think you would notice the height. When the labor is considered, I'd rather go with new H&R or Eibach springs, with some good Bilstein or Koni shocks. I mean, why put on parts with mileage when they can wear out very soon. Save yourself the labor in the long run and buy some new performance parts.

Just my $0.02.

True dat Mystikal,

I am getting the springs AND shocks for 100 CAN and they have been used less than 40,000 KMS


Anybody else think this is a good/bad swap?
