Different front suspension for early 88 735i? (archive)

[ Follow Ups ] [ 7-series (E32) Message Board ] [ Msg. Board FAQ ]

Posted by Troy on April 05, 2001 at 20:33:16:

I was looking through my Bentley Manual, and noticed that the procedure for removing the struts from an 88 E32 was omitted. The procedure for the 89-94 cars was there, but not the '88. Also - when looking though catalogs such as Bavarian Autosport, I notice that the springs for an early e32 (like mine - 04/87) are a different part number.

1) Are these springs hard to find (for a 04/87 build date)
2) Are they compatible with the E23?
3) Why would BMW change their suspension setup so early in production of a line?
4) Will i be able to find Bilsteins (preferably Touring) for my build date?

Thanks in advance for any help.
