    I have looked all over for something that will even up the lopsided E36.
    Does anyone here know where I can buy a thicker rear spring rubber to even out the ride height ?
    Also if I could ask, would the same method also work on a 1998 E36 318is coupe ?
    My intention is to buy a 98 318is coupe, stick some coilovers on it, and a thicker spring rubber for the drivers side rear spring, and adjust the front (hottuning coilys) slightly higher on the same side in order to get the perfect left/right balance.
    Thankyou for any help or advice,

    Dazza, there are many posts about the E36 lopsided-ness on this forum.
    The car was built for the european left hand drive market, and as such was slightly higher on the left hand side (our passenger side) as the car would sit level when the driver was sat in the driving seat (on the left hand side in europe, as opposed to our right hand side driving position).
    Anyone else have any idea's on the thicker spring rubber ?
    I have heard a few people on here mention this item, but no links as to where I can buy one, and google doesnt give me any idea's either....

    Thicker spring pads available at main dealers, only about £8.00 lots of us E46 owners are getting them for the same reason.
