    hi, iv just got my E36 put on some jamex coilovers as my standard setup was pretty shot with 120k on the clock, problem is its too low, iv managed to get the height right at the front but the back sits too low as theres no adjusment on the back, my question is can i get away with fitting some standard rear springs, with the new jamex shocks?
