Newb lowering question. How to?

Hello,

First I will like to say that I did search was not very successful, maybe being 2AM and I am tired lol.

E92 335i

So I have 19x8.5 front Et 35, with 245 35
and 19x9.5 rear Et 33 with 265 30

My question is that I want to lower my car, to eliminate the wheel gap of course (on sports suspension). I want to buy springs and struts (not coilovers)

What springs and struts should I buy? So I do not experience any rubbing or any issues?

Sorry, this is the first time I will lower my car.

anyone with a similar setup have pics and specs?

+1 that's what I am going with, but with E36/E85 bump stops.

For OP, just browse through the vendor's for sale section for available setups. Rather then asking, just look in there. There are plenty of options for you, such as Koni FSD/Eibach combo, H&R cup kit, BMW performance suspension and Eibach lowering kit. And no your wheels won't rub as long as you are not slamming your ride.

I will offer you a link here for you to start your research.....

why wouldnt you just get coils so you can adjust everything to your liking..when you get a cup kit or w.e you just have to live with whatever you get.. ive made that mistake on many of my cars thinking i dont want to lower it that much then next thing i know im on air (not on the 335) get some kwv2 they are amazing.

I just cant see myself spending 1000+ on lowering my car, plus not to mention installation labor.

And I know, if they are the right height, I will not adjust them again.
