4352RE: [bmw e28] sagging rear
- Apr 22, 2006deshan,
You want a little, or a lot? For cheap, get new(er) rear springs, but
chances are you'll then have to replace ALL the rubber bushings: rear
subframe, swing arm, dog-bones, and maybe the rear sway bar links. If you
haven't done the front, they'll need replacing too.
At the other end are Bilstein sports and lowered sport springs and bigger
sway bars, I have the Dinan bars which require welding on heavier attachment
points, and H&R springs, which were slightly stiffer than others available.
Depending on where you are, I have the rear shocks and springs I pulled when
I put in the Bilsteins.You can have them for the cost of shipping from

Subject: sagging rear and tired seats
I own a 1987 528e and the rear is sagging to the point where I can't carry
passengers in back seat without scraping speed bumps (or traffic calming
devices as they're now called here).
Since these parts need replacement anyway, what better time for
upgrades!!? I'd like to improve my cornering and reduce body lean. Car seems
all original I've added a K&N cone filter and upgraded tires to Yokahoma
H4S's 195/65HR (wow!! what a drastic improvement that was!!)
Also leather seats now horribly cracked everywhere and drivers seat frame
is broken to the point where I now am leaning back and over towards
gearshift (for maximum leverage!!) seats are the electric adjustable sofas
(they need replacement too).
Any suggestions will be helpful.
