Koni springs?

I am going to lower my '95 325i, but i havent decided what brand of springs to use. I don't like how the front naturally rides higher on the e36's, so i was originally set on h&r sport springs which would lower my car an inch in the back an an inch and a half in the front. Then i found a set of Koni springs which offer a 40mm drop in the front and a 25 mm drop in the rear. The incresed drop in the front compared to the rear is appealing, and the konis are cheaper to. Has anyone had any experience with the koni's or heard anything? Does anyone have any suggestion? thanks

Have you thought about Eibach springs, i think it's the Eibach pro kit, it's a comfortable ride and it's a nice drop too

I have not heard anything about the Koni springs but they make GREAT Shocks.

well i got the koni springs and bilstein shocks and i love it. The front and back actually have the same wheel well or lowering room. it doesnt look like it squats, like many e36's do. The ride is stiffer, but way better. with konis being much cheaper than eibachs or h&r's i would definitly recomend them

H&R springs are cooler. They are made in Germany. So there. just wait till i get front shocks then my car will be as cool as yours.
