    Yes! Thats great news! Thanks for making this happen.
    Looks like Bilstein is getting it together regarding the dampers, I have seen a few sets hit shelves in the past week or so. Hopefully that will start to pan out.

    Until then, this is the option
    -----------------------------------------------
    Hello,
    We can do the re-valves but instead of matching spring rates please provide the percentage of change you require. i.e. add 15% to rebound and 5% to compression. Turnaround time is 6-8 weeks at this time.
    Strut inserts $170.00ea
    Shock non-adjustable $130.00ea
    ------------------------------------------------

    So for that to work, either we each do some "math" and send bilstein some info (would also need to know the existing valving), or get some guidance from the powers that be.

    I'll bug him again in a week or two. I get the feeling he may be trying to hold out long enough to get the dampers but he's not a man of many words. At least not via email to some stranger (me).

    Local shop recommended H&R Sports at 182/343 with 1”/.75” drop. Not sure...
    The HR sport/race aren't great as they are "progressive" and not much stiffer than factory. The off the shelf B8's and Konis aren't matched to the HR spring rate. Linear springs (i.e. J stock) are going to be better. Higher rate doesn't always = harsher ride. Many times the harsh ride can be attributed to soft springs mixed with aggressive dampers along with longer bump stops.

    Most people don't go through the trouble of matching everything up because at that stage they could just go coilover. But I have no intention of modifying my strut housing and enjoy reverting back to stock easily if needed.

    Thanks Will. Do you know how much the drop is from stock? Do you mind posting or sending me a picture of the stance?

    J stocks are 640/1080 lb spring rate. They are awesome, don't bottom over every little thing and aren't harsh. Yes they are firm, but I've done 22 hrs straight on them (yes at one time) and it wasn't a big deal. HR Race springs are WAY too soft for, well, anything. (Been there, done that.)

    I had the HR Race on my old M3 and it was good on the street. I have J-Stock on my current one. It is 95% time a track car but I will drive it on the street to an AutoX if I am to lazy to load the trailer and it isn't that big of deal.
