    ? Is it possible to buy m3 suspension and swap (m)

    swap it with a 96 328i? I like the suspension of the m3 a lot better than the 328's. Would it be possible to simple buy the m3 suspension components and install them? Is it like a simple swap?

    Thanks,

    try a WTB on the E36 M3 board. do a local pick up

    to save shipping charges. it may take a while, but the deals are out there. i did the install myself. good luck.

    It is easy, however you need about $100 in new....

    parts...

    The swaybars on the M3 connect directly to the front struts vs. how your setup currently is built. So, you have to buy some "links" that allow them to work together.

    Also, you will need to buy M3 spring pads since the diameters of the springs are different than yoru stock ones. You should also add new rear shock tower mounts while replacing the whole thing since your original ones will most likely not last after you spend time and $$$ swapping your suspension (Murphy's Law.)

    Overall, I bought a full M3 suspension three (3) years ago with 7k miles on it for $400. I then got the extra parts and had a mechanic install it. Overall, the entire project ran $1,000.

    I am still very pleased with it.
