    Springs are always matched, there is no one stock spring or Eibach spring. Being aftermarket though, the Eibach options are simplified, you just choose the engine (318i, 320i, 325i etc.) and the body type.

    S54 is heavier than the M54 so an OEM+ setup like in this guide might not be for you. In such a case I would probably get M3 coilovers from Sachs or Eibach.

    Great thread!

    My use case: 2004 ZHP Coupe 138K. RTABs are shot. Their replacement is leading to the replacement of the rear dampers-->mounts-->stops.
    Driving: Street and possibly a little track for fun. Not competitive.
    Starting with rear only. Front is OE sans new Lemforder FCABs.

    Question: Regarding RTABs... I plan to have a local BMW shop install the bushings. Would the Camry MOOG bushings be a installation problem or just some extra effort?

    Thank you for the advice.

    I did not know the S54 is significantly heavier than the M54 until reading the above post and thus did a search to find this link:

    The S54 is considerably heavier than the M54. Thanks for pointing this out, Galapolis!

    You should probably consult with your mechanic about that.

    +1. Not all garages want to do the fab required, though it is minimal

    Installed the below yesterday.. But 2 rookie questions for you guys..
    1. Of the two pics, which way has the damper attached correctly on the bottom?

    • E36 M3 (Sachs) dampers, bump stops, as recommended
      E46 M3 mounts sub'd in


    Was concerned dust covers might not fit the slightly larger circumference dampers, but fit was fine

    Lastly, I am opting not to take the Camry Moog route for RTABs, and bought the Meyle HDs. Should have asked the local shop, as he will only install customer provided parts for cash and will not warranty his work. I get it.. with all the yahoos out there wanting after market chinese crap installed I wouldn't warranty it either. Therefore, for him to warranty work, he will have to secure the parts.

    2. With that being said, are the Meyle HD the a good option?

    Thanks in advance!

    Has the below happened to anyone else? I received the below email:

    I dont know if this site is dead now, I canít seem to log in to comment on this post.

    The front strut part numbers heís saying to buy is incorrect. I just wasted $300 and 3 hours listening to it.


    Front left damper E46 SACHS Pro Touring 317-542 $110 Previously known as SACHS Advantage.
    Front right damper E46 SACHS Pro Touring 317-541 $110


    This is wrong. It will raise the ride height to a base level car. Please delete this before more people get screwed over.

    Must be a troll, we all know dampers don't change ride height.
