6.5" rear spring. These to be exact:

I would remove the adjuster and re-add pads. The weight of the car will keep the spring on the control arm. Realistically even with the adjuster when you jack up the car the springs are so short that they'll fall over half the time anyways lol

I have the tall GC RSMs which raise droop by about 2 inches so my springs won't fall out so I guess that would be even better!

So ya, I'll try just a rear pad, maybe keep the rear plate in there to help spread load even more(it's only 3mm thick anyway) I suppose I can add more rubber underneath if I need to raise it more too.

Thanks If you roll down ever, let me know

Do these indicate spring height?

Ya, we have the same exact front springs 150mm.64mm.77n (440lb) and I'm guessing your rears are 165mm (6.5") like mine as well.

I like Tease's suggestion of ditching the adjuster. I'm going to keep the reinforcment plate and put the stock bottom pad back in and just put the spring on top of that. I'll post pics of what it looks like, may need to "shim" it a bit if I'm at 12.5" ride height

Looking really nice!! 1st off, congrats on getting engaged and your business! Like those ass shots of your M after the install of the diffuser. Just wondering when you had the stock 67's where they squared or staggered and did the diffuser come painted or did you have to get it done? Thanks!

Thanks! The old stock 18s I had were what came with the car originally which is the staggered setup, 8"x9".

The diffuser was $275 shipped painted (you just tell them the paint code e.g., A08)
I think there's a link up there to the Review thread I made with more details

Cool deal! Wow $275 shipped and painted!! That's a great deal, what's the color code for your car since mine is the same color . Sorry fairly new owner to my e46 and learning as I go.

Thank you

No worries, A08 is the paint code.

The ebay seller is happybuyitnow168 iirc, but I had to negotiate the price to $275, it would have otherwise been like $300 shipped or a tad more. I didn't even try to negotiate at first, I just wanted to ask about local pickup since his location was Whittier, CA, but theyre made/painted/shipped from Taiwan.

Good stuff!

Those 18s are clean. Always thought the Sportlines were the best CSL reps.

Thanks man trying to get to your level

I'm really really happy with the choice to get them and to go 18" Kinda wish I went 235/265 rather than 245/275 but the meaty look is cool too.
