E36General discussion and technical help for (E36) 1992-1999 3 series cars. 318, 323, 325, 328.
I lowered my car with H&R sports and have bilstein sports...love the combo, but I find that when im cruising at 85+ and encounter some rough road, it feels like my car is being bounced around too much- To the point where im nervous, so naturally i slow down.. I want my car to handle like it did off the factory floor (well as close as possible w/ a lowered set-up). What needs replacing here? I dont need to go 85+, but it concerns me because I know my bimmer should eat up the road at high speeds, not be unstable..
I went to a secondary shop to have it alighned..I suspect it is tramlining tho.. I watched as he was doing the alignment and he had to take a torch to my tie rods to lossen the nut..i was very concerned with this but he assured me it was fine..He aligned it to the computer specs but couldn't do camber..Im thinking im going to go to the pros for this one..thanks

If you've got more than 100K miles on the car and haven't replaced the ball joints it's probably time. You can buy new control arms with both ball joints already installed for about $80 each. While your swapping out arms, replace the control arm bushings with M3 bushings and that should really tighten up the handeling.
