Coilover help ASAP

Postby Brad Smith » Thu May 26, 2016 12:18 pm

So I'm fitting my coilovers rears went on fine I'm just trying to fit the front however the drop links won't fit. The bloke I bought them off said they would fit without the need of new drop links.

Am I going to need shorter ones ?

Thanks.

Yep. People normally use Hyundai coupe REAR drop links in the front of E46s. Alternatively there's a Civic which also has suitable drop links. The hyundai ones are about £10 a pair

You have a set of Bilstien coilovers don't you? I wouldn't have thought they'd need shorter drop links.

I have a pair of Meyle hyundai drop links kicking around, never used them. I think they're a little longer than the short ones you've got looking at the pics. You can have them for the price of postage if they'll help? Might be worth taking some measurements, work out roughly the length you need and I'll measure them. If they'll work your welcome to them.
