H&R only makes front springs for our cars, so I'd recommend against it unless you like how the rear sits and just want to drop the front. B&G makes springs that drops the E39 M5 pretty nicely. If you're going to spend money on springs + shocks, I may suggest looking into BC Racing Coilovers also. It may be 'overkill' in terms of what you'd be using it for, for the money, it'll drop it exactly how you want it.Question. . .no tracking of the car will occur. . .moderate flogging may transpire - will just springs suffice for the drop (say a medium rate H&R)? I'm am not a talking a crazy drop. . .maybe .5 rear and ~.75-1 inch front? My last coilover set was a TC Kline setup on my e36 M3 and it seemed like overkill to me although the adjustability was nice to have (even though it was hardly used).
I might be tempted to do it all (lip/diffuser/stance) if it were just springs and not a full blown PSS9. . . .errrgh
When are you planning the install Tim?. . .might be time for a road trip. . .I am going with the BC set up Mike. I currently have the B&G springs. I want a little more adjustment than what I currently have. I'm in the same boat, no track time, but spirited driving.
urghh. . . .If we can get a week without salt and snow and shatty weather its possible. . .i cant take her out of the garageAs soon as I can afford to buy them, LOL. We can install yours at the same time if you want.
I won't be able to purchase mine for a while yet anyway. I have to have them installed by April 1st for our trip to Atlanta though......urghh. . . .If we can get a week without salt and snow and shatty weather its possible. . .i cant take her out of the garage
Do you have an alignment place you trust over there? I don't know if I want to make the trek back to the burgh without an alignment after install.
Speaking of install. . .I have read that there are no other OEM parts to replace on the BC setup (unlike the PSS9's) can anyone confirm?
