    Hi all I'm fitting coilovers to my e36 325i coupe and I found I had a snapped rear drop link.
    The new ones are a fair bit shorter than the originals and I can't seem to get them to fit as they are fouling the halfshafts.
    Am I doing somethin wrong.?
    Thanks John

    Yes m8, Thread title for 1, (cheers ) putting the thread in the correct section for 2 and 3 if the old drop link and the new one laid on the floor next to each other look different then I'd have a guess at wrong part.

    Didn't realise it was the wrong section or title sorry.
    Yes it is #5 on the diagram mate, how come they are shorter then..?
    I'm sure I've read some people fitting these..?

    Wot setup do they fit then.?
    They're listed for all e36.?

    if they are shorter then they are wrong for your application, plus if one is shorter than the other then it is going to pull that one side of the suspension up! not what you want.

    Sounds like you need to take it back to where you got it from!

    I got some new ones from Euro Car Parts without any issues
