Issue W/ Pos Rake

Hey guys I'm trying to figure out a way that I might reduce the Pos rake I have w/o buying coilovers or cutting springs. The vehicle is currently sitting on H&R springs with M-Sport shocks, any suggestions?

Cutting springs? Jeeze did you really even say that?

Are you running stock tire sizes? Any pics of the rake? Is this stance unique to your car or do others with this setup report the same issue? Try looking into spring pads for the rear.

The H&Rs have fairly obvious rake on them. The Eibachs are much more neutral but still have a tiny bit...

Sorry for the late reply... Yea 3002, someone in my BMW car club actually suggested that; I almost passed out! I'll try to post a pict soon but it seems like all of the pictures of cars lowered o H&R's seem to have that Pos rake. Does anyone have any good links for aftermarket spring pads?

I wanted to drop the car on H&R super sport springs since they give the most drop but that rake is the only thing holding me back... And coils are 4x the price of the springs just to have an even drop

exactly, I'm thinking that if the lower spring mount for the rear is changed out to the M3/335i rear spring mount, it might fix the problem.
