    Hi,

    Hopefully somebody can help out with a simple question. I have Eibach springs with B4 shocks on my E46 M3, but the rear sits just a little too low for my liking.

    From browsing the forum I've found that 10mm spring pads (33531136387) will raise the car slightly, but these are the upper pads only. Do I also need to fit new lower spring pads, or will I be fine running 10mm upper pads and 5mm lower pads?

    If I need new lower pads, part number would be super if anybody has it!

    Cheers

    Fine running the othersize pads :)

    I put the 10mm on mine as well to raise the rear slightly :)

    Thanks, that's great.

    How much difference did the 10mm pad make to the ride height? Was it worth doing or would you have gone for a 15mm to raise it further?

    A few mm tops I would say, remember the rubber will compress so you wont actually get an extra 5mm, I am happy enough with it, the 15mm ones cost a fair amount more from memory. I did replace my lowers for OEM too.
