Up Date - Wheel Gap has gone
As you can see, a distinct lack of pictures. So, having done mine today using the above and the BMW TIS for reference I took some pictures and will annotate as I go - this is plagiarism.Maxum wrote: It's not a to hard job, the rears will take about 15/20min per side including jacking it up and taking the wheel of, once the wheel is off there is one bolt to remove that hold the rear shock to the swinging arm, once out just push down on the brake disc at the same time yank the spring out,
pop the new spring in, connect the shock back on, wheel back on job done
The front are a bit more involved, not many bolt to take out just two at the bottom, one large one that clamps the front shock to the front hub and one nut the hold the link rod from the anti roll bar to the shock you just need to undo the top one, push down on the front hub until the shock slides out of its clamp, use plenty of WD40, then under the bonnet there are 3 nuts for the top mounts remove them, you will need a good set of spring compressors, compress the spring until the top mount fells lose then remove the dust cap in the middle of the mount and then you will see one nut undo that and then the top mount will come of , unwind the compressors and remove the springs, do the job in revers when fitting the new springs, job done. an hour for each side should do it. you just saved your self £300.00, even if the have to buy your self some tolls for the job it will still be a heap cheaper.
