At what mileage do suspension components such as shocks wear out? I have a 2006 325i (non sport) with 86k miles on it, and am looking to lower the car and improve handling. I'm not sure whether I should go with a set of springs of some sort, while ignoring the stock shocks, or save up to do both, since I hear you have to do an alignment when you lower the car.
At the same time, since adding shocks/springs adds up in price, would a cheaper set of coiliovers such as BC racing be an option? For the record, I'm after looks, while not being too low. I also love throwing my car around corners.
