Default What rear springs for swap?

Hi all, Iíd like to raise the rear as this is just too low for my taste. These are the HR sport (despite being red) 6cyl Z3 springs. I found some stock nice 2000 M Roadster on eBay but not sure if thatíll be too much rake. Any suggestions? I am using the 3 condor pads currently.

Are you sure you have the right H&Rís? Seems like theyíre pretty excessively coil bound. Iíd say stock M Roadster or even Ti Sport springs would raise you up with the pads you are running. I have some of both if youíd be interested.

I need something more for 6 as my stock sport springs squat too much. Yes theyíre supposed to do that by design but I wish it was higher. May get a coilover adjuster. I would prolly still use some spring pads on stock roadster. Seems too low for me

Perfect height. I have DINAN springs and they are too low IMO.
