Guidelines for improving your BMW Suspension.
Never lower your vehicle too much! This is possibly the biggest no no. Lowering looks great and can considerably enhance a vehicle’s cornering ability but going too low is damaging to both handling and safety. Going too low can cause bumpsteer, in which the tie rods and control arms are moving in different arcs. This results in the wheels steering themselves with no input. Each time a car is so low that the suspension bottoms under cornering loads, the end of the car that bottoms out will violently slide. Super low guys are convinced that they are driving racing cars but if you see them on the race track they will really struggle achieve a competitive time. So mount good quality springs such as Eibach, H&R or Ground Control.
Find a local shop that does racing alignments near your home. Car alignment, should be completed with your weight in the drivers seat and the technician bouncing the vehicle after each little adjustment to settle the suspension. Set the tire pressures prior to getting an alignment. Remember that after lowering any vehicle the the suspension must also be realigned.
