Need to raise rear end

I'm running Koni Yellows with H&R sport springs. Is there any way to raise the rear end just a bit? It hangs down a little too low for my liking. I'm looking to raise it 1/4 of an inch or so.

Once upon a time there was an official spacer for this, but unfortunately it appears to be discontinued as it no longer shows a part number on realoem...

I've thought about that, we have one at work but they aren't too fond of us using it for non work related things. However it looks like some people have had luck buying that part of ebay from another country.

Thanks for posting this! I just realized that the rear springs I'm about to install in my E91 are non-XI, and the difference between an XI and non-XI rear spring is the XI spring is 10mm longer. I guess I'll be getting some pads too

Where are you putting these? How do you cut them so they fit?

Thanks!

No need to cut anything if you buy the e30 spring pads. The other guy decided to just make his own.
