    I want to retain the stock ride height, but also want to decrease roll, dive and squat. It is my current understanding that larger sway bars can help with roll but not really with dive and squat. So I believe that a stiffer spring rate will do the trick; however, I am not sure how to go about...

    Are there any non-lowering stiffer springs for aftermarket purchase? Or is there a way for me to keep the ride height stock when installing stiffer springs? I am aiming for 600 lbs/in in the front and 700 lbs/in in the rear, while keeping the stock ride height. Also, would it be okay to use...

These springs offer the best drop of any lowering spring on the market for the M3, while still maintaining the same great feel of the stock suspension. Great opportunity...

    I've been stuck in process of trying to reinstall my OEM strut after dealing with finally pulling it out of the pinch bolt. I'm not having trouble reassembling the strut assembly, but rather getting it to go back in. I've tried 2 methods: Method 1 Insert it into the wheel well, mount with 1...

    I don't know if anyone else has ran into this problem but one night I was working on a head gasket replacement with I*do*Werke on an m52 engine and we had to fully dissemble the head before it was sent to the machine shop. This involved removing the cams, cam trays and valves. Removing the...
