    M sports are usually approximately 15mm lower than standard models IIRC

    So if you fitted 40mm springs to an M model then you will only get a drop of approximately 25mm

    On the E36 M models the anti roll link arm is shorter. Instead of going from the anti-roll bar and connecting to the strut it is shorter and connects to the front lower control arm.

    Please be sure to take some before and after pictures and even some on the ramp when the work is being done if possible

    What make of springs did you go for and what drop?

    Look forward to hearing your review

    thinking of getting my motor dropped soon...if you can get any close ups of how the front looks put up i would appreciate it
    (you can still use photobucket and img tags to put up pics )
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
