Default 1995 318ti suspension upgrade parts

Howdy all,

I am new here, sorry to post a question as my first post. I'm having trouble finding suspension upgrade components... all of the complete kits I am seeing say they don't work on the ti, what with the e30 rear suspension.

Does anyone know where a complete kit could be found for the 95? I'm looking for a slight drop and performance upgrade if possible, but honestly even the stock components would be better than my bouncy current situation.

I have looked here a bit but most of the threads are pretty old with a lot of dead links. I plan to have a local shop install, but would like to buy the parts in advance.

Thank you in advance.

Just pick up telephone and talk to someone reputable, such as Turner, and tell them what you're looking for. They'll put a package together for you that's perfect.

And they generally have the best price on Bilstein so it should be competitive too.

Welcome to the org! Check out www.bimmerbum.com. Ed is a ti enthusiast and will set you off in the right direction.

I run Konis and H&Rs and I love it

+1 to Elan & Jim, both good ways to go about an upgrade. I am running Koni adjustable with a Ground Control coilover conversion for the ti. A pretty aggressive setup for the street but great for auto cross and track days. In the past I have used the H & R "race" springs with the Koni's, they are pretty soft for track use but they do lower the ti nicely & make it look pretty good. Welcome to the .org & good luck. Please post pictures when you can!

Thanks everyone, I will check those sources out. I'm in Grants, why do you ask? Pretty sure I have the only TI in town!

My son, (teen ti) is in Fort Defiance. He bought his ti from another .org member in Albuquerque about 2 years ago.
