Yeah, we don't say this just to milk more money by selling you coilovers. On other applications, we'd recommend lowering springs all day long, but these cars not so much. Time and time again we see people around here doing lowering springs and become dissatisfied, then have to do it all over again with coilovers.wow, your pic of the front strut scares me...definitely no springs only on this car
These cars actually do pretty well in the camber / toe department when lowering.honestly, coilovers are way easier to install anyway, so i'm not too worried about the cost. they also provide a tangible benefit over stock. have you noticed that camber goes off a lot when lowering these cars 1.2-1.5 inches? i assume toe is fully adjustable too and can be accounted for on a mostly stock car with just the mild drop.
just have to convince myself that MCS with remote reservoir is NOT needed since that's what I've put on cars in the past (for track use of course).
You got the right idea.got it, thanks...ya my bmw m3 was set at -3.5 up front, but that was on purpose as it was a track car...
-1.5 isn't bad at all and probably preferable to me anyway...in the end toe kills tires much much faster than camber anyway
Riding on bump stops is not a bad thing IF setup properly. Most cars use the bump stops as an active part of the suspension travel to increase spring rate. This is something that was pioneered by BMW back in the 90's as a way to use soft main springs, but still have a car that does not roll, squat or dive heavily upon inputs. Every BMW car since has used bump stops as additional springs to aid in the purpose of the main springs.
The issue comes with there is an underdamped (not dampened) situation with a shock from the factory (model 3) that then has lowering springs installed on it. This compresses the bump stop at static ride height increasing the spring rate heavily to a level that is not controllable by the factory damper.
