Put Bilsteins on the front and back.

But, now am waiting for more parts to arrive. Meyle LCRs, bushing, Sway bar links, tie rods. Should feel good once I get it all back together.

I've done a few things to my Ti recently.I took out the original headlights out and put in the Depo angle eyed ones,stainless steel clutch and brake hoses,removed some speakes and the sub/amp out of my Mustang and put it in the Ti.I also replaced the front lower control arms with the Meyle ones. Next will be a M3 front bumper cover,fog lights and engine mounts this fall.

I installed a NIB DASC supercharger on my 97 318ti,
New plastic coolant hoses and vacuum lines while i was in there,
Runs pretty good,
Dare I say, Even a bit peppy.

Put in some e36 m3 H&R race springs, front and rear. Will test drive it in a week or so, looks better than it did, let's hope it rides nice too. Gotta get some new struts and shocks soon.

Replaced rear rotors with Geomet pair. 1 nut was a pain in the butt, the other came right off easy with some liquid wrench

Replaced my summer tires with this year's latest, favorite rubber. They seem quite good. I hope Dunlop will export them, if for no other reason than to offer another possibility to consider.

Installed Front Strut reinforcement plates and adjusted the front coilovers down about 3/8". Also removed the adjustable rear spring perch (un-needed, only raised the rear about 3/4" too high). Just have to see how much it settles down now...

Washed and waxed it (Black detail kit!), too...

Finally all my parts arrived and I found some time.

finished up install of LCAs, bushings. struts, shocks, mounts, tie rods, sway bar links.

All buttoned up and ready to go to the alignment shop this afternoon.

Besides the struts being completely shot and leaking oil, the ball joints and rubber parts didn't look too bad. Although I am glad I did changed everything because at 18 years and 157K miles these parts are due to fail sooner than later.

I think I might too nice to this little car.

Did valve cover gasket and cabin filters today. Job took longer than I thought. I guess everything is harder to work on than a 2002.
