Lowering E30

I own a 1988 325 is Ive been looking for a set of springs to lower the car at least two inches......... all Ive been finding on the net lowers the car 1.7 max. If anyone knows a shop where they sell good springs or a suspension setup thats not too expensive in the GTA area plz let me know........

Thanks

A lot of places should offer springs for the E30, i got my springs from Motronix years ago, 2.5" Apax, had those on a few of my cars and i'm happy...good price too.

Are you sure you wanna drop the E30 that much. With my .75-1.5" lower than stock ride I offten have trouble parking, my spoiler may scrub or my muffler may be close to scrubbing
