E39 Touring suspension
I'm still looking at used E36 and E39 options and have seen a low-mile E39 528i Touring in the Autotrader that looks particularly low in the back - possibly shot suspension? (If it's just the way it looks in the photo, then there's nothing to worry about...) Does anyone have any experience replacing the rear suspension on an E39 Touring? A buddy of mine had an E34 540i Sport which had the self-levelling rear suspension of the M5 and when the rear needed to be replaced it was a couple of grand per side, if I remember correctly. The E39 Touring models also use a self-levelling system, and if it is a similar technology to the previously-mentioned M5 system, picking up a Touring with a bum rear suspension could mean a big cash-drop right out of the gate.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
