Don't know if this is any help.

Thanks, but what I'm looking for is what's printed on the rear springs. Note how this spring has "T3" printed on it. Pic belongs to an E90 post member with a 335i coupe.

I just got mine installed today and my front shows T3 but i havent looked at the rears yet. I will check them out for you...I know for a fact that something is wrong with yours because my fender gap does not have 1 inch difference...its a little bit high right now but i know that it will settle within few weeks or so and il have them align it as well
