    Hey All! I've tried to cover all my bases and dig through existing posts, but have had no luck. I currently have a set of Bilstein PSS (B14) coilovers on my '01 325i. I run a set of CSL reps that are 18X8.5 et40 with a 225/40/18 tire with zero clearance issues on the fenders or the...

    Hi everyone, It's been a while since my original post on the forums (http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=1106756) and my 2003 325i has come a long way in terms of reliability. At this point I figure it is time to refresh the suspension. The goal for this job is to improve the daily...

    Hi everyone! I've been looking for the perfect for me suspension set up for the past 8 months and finally found a set - Bilstein B14 PSS. Unfortunately, there seems to be a world-wide backorder, and won't be available until mid-July. Since I want to get at least one auto-x/track-day in this...

    So I have a new-to-me 2001 328i sport wagon that needs at a minimum shocks and struts. I have read a lot of whats on here to be had and I have come to the conclusion that for me, maintaining stock ride height and feel, bilsteins B4 series all around are my answer. Not interested in performance...

    I just bought a set of Bilstein B4 struts to replace my aging OEM's and have run into a slight problem. On the original struts the diameter tapers at the bottom into a smaller diameter section. Originally, the pinch bolt and clamp was attached to the larger diameter section, as seen in the...

    I need to replace my front struts, and I was wondering what everybody thinks of Bilstein vs Koni struts. Most people I've seen on the forum recommend Bilstein, but is that because it's just the best for the money, or because it's the best period? Konis are sometimes twice as expensive (the ones...

    2001 e46 M3 Vert Manual 225/45/18 Front 255/40/18 Rear Michelin Pilot Super Sports So I installed the Bilstein\Eibach B12 kit. Performance seems great, I'm very happy. However, it lowered my rear about 1/2 inch, but raised my front about 1/2 inch. Anyone else have this? With the lines of the...

    Hello, Today I noticed that the right-rear side of my car sits lower than the opposite side. Upon closer inspection it seems as though one shock was replaced while the other side wasn't. :banghead: I'm now out to fix this and I was wondering if I should do all 4 corners, or just the rear. If I...

    Hi Everyone, I will be replacing my shocks and struts along with bushings on my 330i. Living in Canada it is difficult to find what part you want without paying absurd shipping, handling taxes, and duties. I wanted to share my find for my fellow Canadians looking at picking up Bilstein...

  13. E46 XI
    Anyone ever have trouble inserting a bilstein strut into the steering knucle sleeve? On my Xi, seems the Bilstein strut tube is slightly larger than the knuckle sleeve. I am worried about using a wedge to increase the sleeve gap. The metal is hard and I do not want to snap the sleeve apart...

    I am ready to buy a new suspension, since my Original Factory Sport setup is showing its age at 121k miles on my 01' 330ci. I was dead set on Bilstein Sports with H&R Sport springs, since this seemed to offer a firmer ride, and a small drop. I am not interested in anything lower than what the...

    See attached photo. Bilstein sport shocks Not sure how this happened. I did have my tires rotated the other day so maybe they knocked it off. (Or maybe it's the right-hand free-way on ramp curve that I take daily to work at 55+ mph. Nice G-forces on that one!) Anyway the lower shock...
