BMW E36 Coilovers

Coilover Suspension Kits

Want to improve the handling and appearance of your car? Choose Coilovers. When installing coilovers onto your E36 the centre of gravity is lowered, reducing weight transfer. By making these changes the handling of your E36 is drastically improved meaning you can go through turns much faster and with more confidence.

Coilovers consist of several components, including the shock absorber, coil spring, bushings, bumpstop, upper and lower mount, jam nuts, various nuts and washers, and collars to make everything work.

Coilover Benefits:
- Fully adjustable including ride height, camber angle and shock damping.
- Better handling
- Improves the aesthetics of your car
- Better traction when accelerating
- Improved braking capability
