4 bilsteins (brand spanking new)
1 set of each of the three different spring seats (to play with rear height)
1 new set of rear shock bushings (cause i'm sure the old ones are toast)

now just need to find time to tear the ass end of my car apart (and the front to a lesser degree)
Why play with rear height, you know its gonna be set to as low as possible ;)

Im prolly going over there Friday after work.

Plan for Benz is to just swap parts and get it cumfy. Then we can consider cutting springs next week or so. Its going to be fun enough swapping 25 year old suspension parts as it is.

new headlight/grille combo on order for the e30


would've just bought a new bulb but I had 2 headlights (1 high, 1 low on opposite sides) apparently the stock headlights are sealed beam and require buying a whole new headlight so said eff it and bought this style that you can replace the bulbs in.
