I need some help from an E12 expert with the front springs on my 528i,
5sp. A/C, 3/80, USA.
When I got the car it had been many times repaire, including a used
strut assy. Thinking that it may have mismatched springs, I bought a used
set. The "new" springs are ~40mm longer (373mm) than the present springs
(332 mm). New springs are p/n 1117396, yellow and white, old ones are
Which springs should I use?
Are the longer ones for headlight height? were their 2 strut lengths?
I know that Haynes says longer springs in US.
