4555RE: [bmw e28] SPRINGS AND SHOCKS
- Jul 6, 2006the touring shocks only had one perch. It's funny because I took a clip from the old bilstein shock that i had and it still broke down after i replaced it on the way home. 100 bucks down the drain all for nothing. Is it smart to mix springs? say, for my front use the lowered sport springs and for the rear my original stock springs?. or It is possible to use the new bilstein sport shocks I have with my stock springs? another thing is what did you mean by welding your oil pan up?
thanks for your input

sport setup is. I had my oil pan welded up once too. The rear shocks have
several perches, and I believe mine are on the top perch. The clip is
replaceable. I've seen them fail at the track. Probably a good idea to keep
a spare. ping the list if you find some cheap.
I have the H&R spring set and the rear is very soft and I can still break
the end loose in tight corners under power. Guess that's why its called
"driving" and not steering.
Hi guys i had a question for all.
I recently broke the clip of the bilstein shock that i have on my
right rear side. apparently i've been having trouble with these types
of shocks. I currently have lowered sport vogtland springs and TOURING
bilstein struts and shocks. I found out lowering your car especially
in NY is a major risk factor. I already cracked my oil pan and had it
replaced, now it's my rear right shock. I am buying the bilstein
sport shocks but, i was wondering will my car still be stiffer and
good on turns and corners if i put my original springs along with the
bilstein sport shocks? I would keep the sport SPRINGS on but, driving
in the city kind of sucks with all those potholes and bumps. Will it
lessen my hard cornering performance?. Please let me know. I'm still
waiting on the shocks to come so I have time and advice to decide on
what I should do. Basically, I don't want to lose my turning
stiffness nor, crack another oil pan. What do you think? Thanks much
for your help.
