Default Z4 Coilovers

This may be a stupid question, but would they fit on a Ti? I know Z3 suspensions swap over.

The Z3 sits on the same front and rear suspension as the ti... the Z4 sits on the same front and rear suspension as an E46. I have no doubt it could made to work but I do not see it being worth the effort.

Ahh thank you. are ksports good coilovers? what would you recommend bc racing or ksport? I know the price is about the same. sorry if I'm being really annoying with all these posts and crap. The suspension I bought awhile back ended up being a bust.

BC racing seems to have a lot of followers recently, for the money its hard to imagine a better deal right now with such high praise across the forums.

True true. The ksports look pretty legit too though. And they come with the spring rates I'm looking for already. I believe they come with a true rear coilover as well.

I have not seen a true rear coilover for the ti... my initial thought on that is that it might not be the best idea without seriously reinforcing the rear shock mount area as it was only designed to take the stress of shock which is minimal compared to the stress of a spring.

The BC racing coilover thread with the pics of the install and everything shows a true rear coilover. I would be putting a strut brace in the rear. As well as probably the bolt in reinforcers.

Oh nevermind... For some reason I remember seeing a true rear coilover in that thread. My mistake. And after some research that ksport kit does not come with a true rear coilover. But it still seems like a good kit for the money! Comes with the spring rates I want and everything, but the BC racing coilovers seem to be good and are about the same price and I could get custom spring rates.
