E36 5 Lug Conversion on an E30 (pics)

The Ground Control coil-over suspension:

    - E36 M3 modified shortened strut housings with E30 M3 sway bar brackets
    - E30 Koni shortened externally adjustable front inserts
    - Ground Control slim strut cap to clear springs (the one from Koni is too wide and rubs)
    - Ground Control Eibach small springs (650lb)
    - Ground Control adjustable sleeve
    - Ground Control E30 adjustable camber/caster plates with solid strut bearing

    - E30 Koni externally adjustable shocks
    - Ground Control E30 adjustable sleeves
    - Ground Control Eibach springs (800lbs)

The front wheel centered in the wheel well with E30 M3 offset a-arm bushings and ’97-’98 E36M3 a-arms:
As mentioned earlier, you need both to correctly place the wheel.

Front E36 M3 brakes: 315mm x 28mm  -- a big improvement over the stock 260mm
