In Reply to: 528i aftermarket spring/stock shock compatibility? posted by Jerrod on January 26, 2000 at 23:06:30:

Last year I had H&R springs on my 528i with the standard shocks and the ride was OK...but it really didn't handle any just looked better....after a while I switched everything out and went with the Dinan Stage 1 and it made a big difference in the handling...

So to answer your questions, I didn't have any problems with the ride, but it doesn't really do anything if you are looking for better handling...


: I have a 98 528i/5 and am upgrading to the 17" sport wheels/tires. I'll be replacing the springs either with OEM 528 sports or H&R/Eibachs.

: I'd prefer to leave the stock 528i shocks at this time.

: Does anyone know if there will be any ride problems with regard to shock/spring incompatibility?

: Thanks for any advice,
: Jerrod
