    Hey guys,

    what with it being a new year, i have purchased a new track toy, partly due to my interests of the e36, partly from stuffing my golf into a armco at 130mph

    my car is a sport chassis, so is fitted with the uprated suspension from factory, with the m3 style eccentric lower arm rear bushes.

    im getting a few knocking noises, so going to refresh everything,

    ive heard alot about lemforder e30 lower arms, are these the right ones? Lower front left control arm Lemforder OE 10523 01 (31121127725)

    also, i want to uprate the suspension, as its a little tired, ive heard good reviews of the bilstein b12/eibach springs combo, but is this more of a street package than an aggressive track style?, i dont particularly want to go the coil over route unless totally necessary.


    also who has a bmw x brace for sale?

    any info would be great, i will update this post soon, as laptop about to run out of battery.

    thanks!

    Jim

    just an update on a few things ive just purchased.

    e30 lower arms lemforder.
    complete Spax Coil over kit, incl top mounts etc.
    x Brace.
    short rack steering rack.

    gettin the coil overs corner weighted, by a mate who sets up porsche race cars, so gonna try and sort it properly.

    just looking to sort out a few mods to the engine and then go from there. once brakes and suspension are sorted, hopefully have a good set up to work on.
