WTB Shocks

Looking to buy a 1992-1999 BMW E36 to part out, or perhaps something a little more specific for your 3 series. E36-tech has got you covered.

Koni over the Bilstein. Bilstein dampening rates are garbage in my opinion. They tend to bounce down the road.

^never had a problem with my bilsteins bouncing. As for the drop OE sport springs will lower your car 1 inch in the front and .5 in the back. Its suppose to look almost OEM but just alittle bit lower.

Our M is bouncy to the point I couldn't stand it anymore so I swapped to Koni Sport. I like Bilstein don't get me wrong they last significantly longer than koni's but both have lifetime warranties. I have Billies in all of my e30's.

Just a FYI from a Bilstein Sport Owner: I have these Setup with H&R Sport springs the ride is pretty stiff maybe a bit too stiff for a Daily Driver. just throwing that out there.

Heres a quick review of them. Few people said no and a few people said ok. One guy had his blow out in only 3 months and another guy said his install was horrendous. A few people said they had some successfully installed but didnt really follow up after the initial "it feels good the first day" post.

EDIT fucking old post. NVM

I have these shocks with Rogue RMS's and reinforcement kit all in one... $315

send me a text to 412 260 1 three nine seven

These shocks are practically new, removed by PO for a full setup. Show little to no signs of wear and compress, depress as they should. Fresh Rogue engineering RSM's are installed and I have a reinforcement kit with frame gaskets as well.
