max drop: tein s or h&r race

medium drop: h&r sport

mild drop: eibach

do upgrade your shocks/struts with either of them.

they say that the H&r's can work with the stock sport suspension. any truth to this? will it kill the shocks in the long term?

H&R Sports will work with the stock sport suspension on an e92, there was an issue on e46's but thats not the case on any of the e90 models.

I've been running S. Techs on oem suspension for 15k miles and 63k miles on the suspension. No problems whatsoever.

Alot of people say the suspension is underdamped with H&R springs and stock shocks. You can find many of those threads on this forum for the past 6 yrs.
