    2004 320d Touring standard rear springs

    Hi all

    Anyone know what the spring rate is for a standard spring in the back of a E46 320d tourer?

    Im buying some rear springs but have to choose the poundage rate and i just want about 30% stiffer than standard.

    Thanks in advance.

    Not got a clue mate are yours SE or M-Sports springs? I find mine plenty stiff enough but it is sports suspension they have 2 white stripes on them ?????? what ever that means, I know that there are lots of different types of spring and it depends on what options were on the car.
    Might be worth going into a stealer's and asking them about what spring was fitted to yours, one other thing are they the original spring from new could be you have a broken spring or some other fault making you think it needs to be stiffer.
    Quiet a lot on here seem to like the bilstein springs slightly lower than sports and a bit stiffer if that's what your after hope this helps a little

    No, I have coilovers and the rear springs are fooked so have to buy some more.

    Going to get some decent ones though but just have to choose what poundage i want, the ones i have at the minute are 30% stiffer than standard an i was happy with the ride till they mucked up lol
