    I'm looking for aftermarket shock & spring for my E36 M3 Evo. Are they the same spec as those use for other E36 6 cyl.? Or do I need to look for sets specify for M3? Heard somewhere that spring on M3 has smaller coil diameter.

    They are not the same spec. Firstly, because of weight differences between the models, the M3 usually has higher rate springs at the front. Secondly, the M3 attaches the anti roll bar droplinks to the damper body i.e. there is a bracket on the body. All other 3 series, except very early models, attach to the wishbone.

    I would look at the bc-racing or hsd aftermarket coilover kits, the bc kit i have reciently had fitted to my m3 came with absolutley everything and the ride quality on the soft settings is more than acceptable, the best bit is these kits come in cheaper than replacing the oem stuff or replacing with good aftermarket uprated stuff and give you alot more adjustability, win win imho!
