:: ECS Tuning :: Coilover Install DIY|Ready set Low



Wanting to lower your car but not sure how to install the suspension? We can help! We installed the ST Coilover System on our E92 335i and documented the process! This should help you with installing a new suspension on your car!

Now the E92 is a little different than the E82 and E88 but this should still be a very helpful DIY video!

Read dude!! First post ECS says this is a good starting point for the e82 but won't be identical.

More or less the same. I did the install this past weekend with the Bilstein B12 suspension. If you're reusing your existing strut tops then it makes the install a bit more complicated in the front. For the rear suspension on our cars, you need to pop out the rear seat side bolsters to be able to free the trunk liner and access the damper mounting nuts.
