    Bmw e46 best shocks

    Ok so yesterday I pick up a nice set of e46 eibach sportline springs that I'm very happy with thanks to Jon1465 I'm very impressed with the ride height of my car and how it handles only issue was when I fitted them I noticed one of my rear shock absorbers is starting to leak so my question is what the best rear shocks to buy its m sports Sachs that's on it at the moment but didn't know if I should get these or if there better ones on the market any help would be appreciated I will be needing 2 as I like doing stuf in pairs

    blistein b4s are a match for m sport. but if your question is the best to buy it would be bilstein b6s. but you need all 4. the best mod to do however is the anti roll bar bushes. do all 4 in poly bushes and it will feel better than the springs alone. i know i did all my suspension upgrades and it was only the antiroll bar bushes that felt the biggest improvement.

    another vote for bilsteins b4 if you are just replacing two b6 if you are doing it all round. Also agree with the arb bushings anything that stops these cars rolling is good they do far too much rolling as standard.
