Struts, Shocks & Springs

I have a 94 325 with blown front strut. Would like to replace struts & shocks and maybe springs. I am running 225/45/17 front and 245/45/17 rears. Little to no track time. And like everyone, would prefer not to blow the bank. Rear rubs sometimes when I am really loading in a turn and carrying weight. Struts and shock are going to have to be done. I am wondering if a spring kit would be in order as well. I would be fine with lowering but do not want to increase rub. Also I think that my current soft rear shocks may be allowing the rub. Any suggestions on combos to consider or sources that have worked well. Thanks.

I have the uuc stage 3 suspension, it has worked great for me so far, not crazy low, or too harsh, but definetely an upgrade in handling. I bought it from understeer.com im guessing 2 years ago by now.
