    Hi there guys hope i got this in the right section im new to the forum and keep getting it rong lol

    bassicly can't find many options of lowering springs for my e30.and was wondering if any others would fit.... Maybe e36 springs on e30 shocks? I have heard that vauxhall corsa rear springs in the fit on the back but not sure i want to try this..... Any advice guys?

    Thanks in advance....

    You even got some spellings wrong

    There are lots of E30 lowering spings on the market, try Eurocarparts for starters

    And dont go putting springs off of a Corsa or anything else on your car, as they will be all wrong due to weights of the cars among other things.

    E36 stuff is fatter and longer IIRC but defiantly wont fit, plus the E36 is heavier so the ride height wouldn't be what you had planned.

    I got some 60mm drop second hand for a E30 here, the fronts are off the backs are still on but coming off soon, they'll be cheap if you want them
