It is definatly a DIY job if you don't mind getting your hands dirty. It is not that difficult, but time consuming. Bruno's site has a very good write-up of the procedure. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any specific questions and also search the archives. I gave our good buddy Jr some tips recently for his '89 535i. Now you have a difficult decision, what suspension setup to use :o)
'92 525i -- With a new H2O pump, T-stat, and belts
I need to replace the shocks and called the dealer who wants almost $800 for all four shocks and labor. Is replacing the shocks and possibly the springs a DIY job or should I leave it up to a mechanic. If this is a DIY project that a mechanical inclined person can do are there any special tools or tips that will help.
