2009 E90 xDrive Suspension Overhaul

 

Many of you know we specialize in Subaru. From simple oil changes to full motor builds and upgraded aftermarket parts. What you may not know is we also offer a variety of services for other makes and models as well.5C938DCB-C284-4F96-BA44-3D7FE8B00569_zpslomn4max

We had a customer give us a call about upgrading the suspension on his 2009 335xi. With blown shocks making the handling and ride quality unbearable, it was time to upgrade to ISC Suspension N1 coilovers!

The ISC Suspension E90 xDrive coilovers (part number B005-4) offer 32 way dampening adjustment as well as ride height adjustment and 3 separate valving options.

Since there we are going have half of the suspension pieces out of the car, the customer also requested we knock out a few other components. Preventative maintenance!

In the front we replaced inner and outer tie rods, lower ball joints, the passenger side axle and installed new control arms with aftermarket bushings, since the factory ones were toast. Moving to the rear we added some Whiteline rear subframe insert bushings.

To finish the car off right, we dialed in the ride height and took our time getting the alignment set to factory specs.  Hopefully some wheels in the future to pull the whole look together!
