Spring questions. . .

Looking at the new FAQ on springs (GREAT job Rob!!!), it looks like the rear springs are only marginally longer (0.06"), but much stiffer.

Has anyone tried moving rear springs (like a set of red's) to the front???

Thanks!

Thanks Mac! I shoulda thought of that... I didnt mean to imply that you screwed it up or might have, but that us chimps in the editorial dept (me) might have switched shit around on accident. I remember rearranging the tables a little, and thought that might have been the problem.

Of course they're correct. I took 'em right out of the factory shop manual. Trust me. and now for an explanation why they are as they "were". BECAUSE...the car was engineered "fully loaded" ie, with four passengers(two in the back seat) a full tank of gas and baggage in the trunk. Does it make sense now?

I double checked the numbers, they are correct. Damn this part of the manual is hard to find things in!!!!

There are specs for the HD Rear springs. I'll send you an email with them included.

Back to my question, putting red springs in the front should work.

Hey Trent!!! wanna be our test case???

Cheers!

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
