Which Dampers For 320d E92

Recently fitted eibach pro kit now one of the rear dampers has started to weep. Not sure what to go for biltein b4s or bilstein b8s also the koni yellows seem to decent. What would you guys recommend ive read so many posts im starting to go round in circles.

Depends whether you want to be able to adjust damping. Konis will allow this, Bilsteins will not.

Think the konis might be a bit over kill for what i need. Found a thread by parapaul think i may try the b4s and different bumpstops etc. Ps nice set-up on your motor that ohlins kit must have set you back some.

Dampers shouldn't affect ride height at all.

B8 are too stiff for normal road use IMO.

Yeah, that sounds about right. IIRC the fronts were 100ish each, and the rears were 150ish for the pair. Just check the part numbers when they arrive, make sure you've got what you ordered.
