Where can I find out more on the springs you installed?

'87 528e

: :
: : Victor,

: : I cannot comment on H&Rs, but I had an 83 528e and now have an '87 535is,

: : I thought the 528e quite capable-some lean, but very tossable, but the 535is springs and (I understand Sport Bilsteins) are a nice combination for more spirited driving.

: : They are firm, but not harsh, and control the car without any bad characteristics. I recommend the combination. Best of all they should be obtainable right at the dealer or after market parts supplier.

: : Bob
: i installex a set of jamex pregressive springs with standard shocks, lowered about 40-45mm
: handles great with no loss in original ride quality, yes it is actually true!
: and im running 220 55 390 tyres that now fill up the guards, look good.
: Beaker
: 84 528i
