UUC sachs suspension

well I just ordered the suspension mostly because my struts are blown now, and well I wanted better suspension anyway. I'll give a review of it once I put it on. Should be nice now that I got new control arms, bushings, and tie-rods on last week. I got the install kit that comes with reinforced shock towers and e46 m3 RSM's, or something..

PS: it's the same setup JrHaile has.

yeah after it settles for a few days i'll take some pics, and let you all know how it is. I'd better not forget the alignment, guess I would notice a large difference?

It's pretty much a replacement stock setup. Doubt it will handle much better than new stock units.

oh ok, I didn't really want to go any lower than an inch and a half because Delaware roads suck, way too many potholes and speed bumps

it said around 1.2 - 1.4" not too much I guess, but I wanted it more for daily driving especially with the potholes around here, and some looks, I doubt I would track my car anyway.

a 1.5" drop with performance springs/shocks is far from a stock setup. JR had this set up put on his 328 and he said the difference was incredible.

^^ Would a setup like H&R springs with bilstien shocks lower it less or just as much?

I think the H&R's lower it right around as much as teh Sachs, maybe a little more. if anything, it's about .5"

I've seen other reviews and it certainly isn't a performance orientated product. You can lower the car as much as you want but it doesn't mean it's performance.

more from what I saw, but I didn't want that because DE roads suck, and I would lose my bumper easily. If DE roads were better I would have got a H & R cup kit or something, that lowers it like half an inch more.

H&R Sport is a pretty nice drop. It won't remove the extra fender space, but it will lessen it.
