    they dont look like the right springs to me or they are defectedin some way cause if thats completely de compressed then the spring should be seperated equally which it isnt
    are both rear springs the same?

    yes,both of them are same.i mean they weren't 100% decompressed,as the damper was still on,but still,they shouldnt be squashed like that.i dont know what to do.shall i contact the venom motorsport or what

    Hi mate

    Just a quick amswer on the ride height, all e36's especially 328's sit higher one side than the other. You will need to adjust the coilover differently on each corner to get it level
