Best Springs For Rally 318Ti?

Post by Osian23 » 05 Aug 2015, 19:41

Ive been searching for front and rear springs for my 318 rally project but not a 100% sure what to use.

ive heard of using M3 lowering springs on the front as the springs will be stiffer but because of the difference in weight between the m3 and 318 it wont lower the front am i right?

Also for the back ive heard people saying E30 Touring springs, will this be ok for the rear?

The shocks i will be using are the bilstein b6 or b8

As a rally car, I'd be looking at rally spec springs - road springs won't last long!! Lowering won't necessarily help either - axle articulation is important!
