E92 eibach springs+lowering perches

Hi all, after some advice. I have just order the eibach pro kit for my E93 335d M Sport, my question is, can this be combined with the lowering perches to give that extra 10mm or so everyone wishes the eibachs gave?

Hi Think Nigelo fitted the eibach kit with the lowering perchs and it gave him some issues. I have the eibach kit with bilstein b4s dampers and shortened bump-stops fitted nice combo. But it scrapes like crazy over speed bumps etc you really have to crawl over them.

When i first fitted the eibach pro kit thought it was a bit crashy that was with standard msport springs. Then fitted bilstein b4s and shortened bump stops the crashiness has gone the ride is really nice. I think the bumpstops have a lot to do with it.

Hey!

I had the combo, but had an awful lot of knocking of some suspension components - think it was the oem droplinks.

It was a shame as it looked great (the rear couldve done with another cm off the ride height however)

HI I used E36 m3 bumpstops and z4 m rear bumpstops. I check later to see if can find part numbers. I would change recommend changing them while your doing the pro-kit.

Cant find the invoice but think they were around 60. My indy charged me 25 a corner installing the shocks etc . Got it aligned on a hunter machine few weeks later charged me 40 for that but i got a set of winters fitted at the same time so they done me a bit of a deal.
