About E46 Coilovers
Your BMW is almost perfect, but it still rides a little higher than you would like, and you are worried about addressing the suspension system on your own. A set of E46 coilovers can help you tackle complex suspension projects yourself. Sellers on eBay offer a vast inventory of coilovers, as well as lowering kits designed specifically for the E46 BMW. E46 coilovers, or "coil springs over shocks," absorb the pressure of the vehicle's weight and movement. A coilover consists of a shock absorber encased in a coiled spring. If your vehicle's shock absorbers start to leak, the coilovers are not performing their jobs. You can replace worn-out coilovers when the need arises, or use lowering or lifting kits to change your BMW's clearance off the ground. Most coilovers fit a range of model years rather than a specific one, which makes it easier to find what you need. However, it is always best to verify the compatibility of your coilovers with your vehicle before you purchase them. If you own the more powerful version of this vehicle, you should purchase the E46 M3 coilovers rather than the standard variety.
