Default Opinions on lowering springs - 07-25-2017, 02:34 PM

Hey guys, i have an 07 335i coupe, my current wheel swt up is 19x8.5+33 in the front and 19 x 9.5+33 in the rear, what lowering springs do you guys prefer? I was leaning towards tein because they drop 1.4" in the front and .6 in the rear, but personal opinions are accepted as well, i just want the front lowered i run 235/35/19 in the front and 275/30/19 in the rear, looking to go low with no rubbing, also running -3 camber in the rear

H&R with Bilstein B6/B8 are always nice, but if you want to lower without rubbing and dial in, then spend a few more bucks and get KW Coilovers

I would say if its just the springs then a set of Eibach sports lowering springs might to it. They still give you a an acceptable ride with their variable coil design. I don't know but I wouldn't be surprised if BMW use that company to make their springs.

What he said based on my research drops were inconsistent with H&R. I also went with Eibach when I did springs.

I'd recommend you do shocks/struts as well if you haven't already.
Everyone's orig shocks/struts are blown at this point, and yours will need to be matched to a lowered ride height. Also important with larger/heavier aftermarket wheels.
