My fronts were linear springs. The rear looks the same in the few pics I took

I believe the extreme drop ones are linear only

I have a entire M3 suspension bits so I cut a bit more feedback...but they are way better than stock.....you will notice how planted you are with in 10 seconds. The rebound is great to. Add some M3 bits and you will really notice it.

It is a lot of pieces:

M3 Upper/lower control arms.
M3 strut brace
M3 front/ rear sway bar (I chose to have front only)
M3 rear guide rods
M3 rear upper links

I would also suggest:

Rear adjustable toe arms
Meyle HD inner/outer tie-rods

Hi Rob,
Do you by a chance have the torque specs for the E90 suspension? The torques needed to put all the bolts and nuts back together?

Thanks

I have been researching BC coil and need clarification on adjusting the damping of the rear. Do I need to purchase the extender? Can the rear be adjusted without removing the trunk liner?

Thanks

You want that kind of quick access youll need to cut a hole in the liner. Unless you want a hole in the liner your best bet would be to leave the liner out make your final adjustments driving it around a few days/weeks then reinstall the liner.
