HP Autowerks AST S/A & D/A Coilover System for your 325i 328i 330i 335i

Proven on the street and track, this system is unmatched by any other system on the market. HP Autowerk's unique AST dampers matched with our custom Swift springs offers superb street manners and unmatched cornering capabilities for the track. Offering separate external compression(Double Adjustable Only) and rebound adjusters, the dampers can be tuned from street comfort to a full race setup in a matter of minutes.

Not looking for that slammed look? Or just want to retain stock ride hight, but want better handling? We can customize the spring rate and height for you! All other off the shelf coilovers can't do that for you!

We use the highest quality motorsport springs sourced from Swift. Why Swift?

Swift's R & D team created material, called H5S.TW, which is stronger then regular silicon chrome material. Because of this material, we could make the spring wire thinner, and could wind the springs with fewer coils, which greatly decreased weight while dramatically increasing available stroke.

We also use thrust sheets where possible. Here is why:

Thrust sheets provide a variety of benefits to coilover systems. As a spring becomes compressed the coils attempt to distribute the energy by unwinding. This is called twisted force. The unwinding makes the spring rate irregular. By allowing the spring to smoothly rotate around the perch during compression, the spring rate will return to normal. Thrust sheets also help dampening and rebound of struts too. Thrust sheet?s bearing action allowing the rotation of a spring allow the load on the spring to be more evenly Distributed which reduces lateral shock shaft load. Increased lateral load on shock shafts cause a reduction in the struts ability to rely on valves for dampening force.

*Coilover shown with optional helper/tender springs. Please call for specific applications.

*Camber plates are optional, but recommended for best handling performance

*We stock all popular rates of high quality Swift springs.

*Custom Swift spring length for customers looking for stock ride heights.

*Optional AST 5000 series dampers are available(5300 series shown above).

*Others may have this kit advertised at a much lower price, but it's without springs and Swift thrust sheets.

Applications for E36 and E46(including M3), E82, E90, E92, and E93.

Only HP Autowerk's AST and Swift combo comes with Swift thrust sheets and any Swift spring rates at no extra charge. That is a $150 value!

Do these fit the xis? Really liking the idea of being able to run stock ride height. Would we have to pick our own spring rate(s)? TIA

So I found they should fit the xi models! And you can at least get the 5300 at stock length for foul weather/conditions, which is great for me!!!

You have already verified xi fitment with AST. As for the springs, you can have them just about any rate you would like.

When wheel/tire clearance is an issue helpers are not used.

Helper springs are specially designed to provide minimal effect on spring rate. Using helper springs allows the spring to stay firmly on its perch when the shock has negative or zero load. Driver should use helper springs if they experience springs coming loose from their perch and/or they can not preload the main spring because of car height issue.

HP Autowerk's AST and Swift spring combo work so well and is so popular, even AST adopted Swift springs for their coilover kits!

Only HP Autowerk's AST and Swift combo comes with Swift thrust sheets and any Swift spring rates at no extra charge. That is a $150 value!


$1849 will get you a complete AST 4100 coilover kit.

If you were to look at the application in the OP, this 4100 kit and sale price only applies to the none x-drive kits.

X-drive kits are special order only with no discounts and requires a 4-6 lead time.
