Please recommend springs

Hello,

Can someone please recommend springs to pair with BMW old performance suspension? Car is E90 330i without sport package.

Thanks a lot.

BMW intended for those dampers to be used with oe sport susp springs, so that's my recommendation. I just happen to have mine available f/s but our cars are different so maybe that's not ideal. Lot's of folks are happy with Eibach p/k springs with those dampers, but get shorter bump stops if you go that route. Another viable option is BMWPS springs, but again you'd want to get the new PS bump stops to go with those springs.

Thanks a lot for help. I want to go with sport package suspension springs if that won't kill the dampers.
Can somebody please tell me the number of SP springs? Is it C or D followed by a digit.

Appreciate for kind help.

Look it up on realoem. The numbers are different for each car: coupe/sedan, motor, tranny

I checked realoem. It didn't seem to have the spring rate listed.
Thanks. I will research it more.
