The BC Racing HM Series Coilover System gets its great qualities from a combination of two previous BC Racing Coilover Systems – the RM Series and ER Series. The HM Series uses an inverted mono-tube damper, just like the RM Series, but adds the independent compression and rebound adjustment of the ER Series. Each HM Series Coilover System uses inverted mono-tube dampers front and rear on McPherson strut vehicles with steel braided lines leading from the top of the damper to the external reservoirs. The external reservoirs allow for a higher oil capacity with the added benefit of increased thermal dissipation, they also house the secondary damping piston. For Subarus and other McPherson suspension vehicles that are heavily tracked, the BC Racing HM Series Suspension System is definitely worth checking out!

Additionally, Dinan lowers the vehicle by 1/4″ in the front and a 1/4″ in the rear for improved suspension geometry and an even more aggressive stance. The Dinan springs are CNC wound with high tensile chrome silicon wire and shot-peened for stress relief to last the life of the car. The increase in stiffness of the springs will reduce the rear suspension compression under acceleration and front suspension compression (or dive) under braking, giving your car a more controlled feel.

When it comes to iconic sports cars that define an era, the BMW E36 M3 stands tall as one of the most celebrated vehicles in the German automaker’s storied history. Introduced in the early 1990s, the E36 M3 quickly earned a reputation for its superb handling and driving dynamics. However, as time goes by and technology advances, enthusiasts often seek ways to enhance their vehicles’ performance and handling. One of the most popular upgrades for the E36 M3 is the suspension system and coilovers. In this article, we’ll dive into the world of BMW E36 M3 suspension and coilovers, exploring how these upgrades can transform this classic sports car into a precision-driving machine.

 

The E36 M3: A Legendary Foundation

Before delving into suspension upgrades, let’s briefly revisit what makes the BMW E36 M3 such an automotive legend. This compact sports coupe, produced from 1992 to 1999, featured a potent inline-six engine, precise steering, and a balanced chassis, creating an exhilarating driving experience. Its suspension system was already exceptional, providing sharp handling and a comfortable ride. However, technology has come a long way since the E36’s debut, and modern suspension upgrades can elevate its performance even further.

 

Why Upgrade the Suspension?

The primary motivation for upgrading the suspension on an E36 M3 is to enhance its handling characteristics, optimize traction, and improve overall control. Here’s why many enthusiasts choose to invest in these upgrades:

  1. Sharper Handling: Aftermarket suspension components can provide a more responsive and precise feel when steering, allowing drivers to navigate corners with confidence and ease.

  2. Reduced Body Roll: Upgraded suspension can minimize body roll during cornering, helping to keep all four tires firmly planted on the road surface for improved traction.

  3. Adjustability: Coilovers offer adjustable ride height and damping settings, allowing drivers to fine-tune the suspension to their specific preferences and driving conditions.

  4. Enhanced Aesthetics: Lowered ride height and a sportier stance can significantly improve the visual appeal of the E36 M3, giving it a more aggressive and purposeful look.

     

Choosing the Right Suspension Components

When upgrading the suspension of your BMW E36 M3, there are several key components to consider:

  1. Coilovers: Coilover kits are a popular choice because they provide a comprehensive suspension solution. These kits include adjustable shock absorbers and coil springs, allowing for precise tuning of ride height and damping rates.

  2. Performance Springs: If you prefer a simpler upgrade, performance springs can be installed with your factory shocks. These springs offer a slight drop in ride height and improved handling without the complexity of coilovers.

  3. Sway Bars (Anti-roll Bars): Upgraded sway bars can reduce body roll and improve cornering stability. They complement other suspension upgrades and are often used in conjunction with coilovers or performance springs.

  4. Bushings: Replacing worn-out suspension bushings with polyurethane or solid alternatives can enhance responsiveness and reduce flex in the suspension components.

     

Installation and Tuning

Installing and tuning suspension upgrades on an E36 M3 is a precise process that requires attention to detail. It’s advisable to have the work performed by experienced technicians who understand the intricacies of suspension systems. Additionally, aligning the wheels and optimizing the suspension settings is crucial to achieving the desired performance gains.

 

The Transformation

With the right suspension upgrades and careful tuning, a BMW E36 M3 can undergo a remarkable transformation. It becomes a car that not only pays homage to its legendary heritage but also embraces modern performance and handling capabilities. Enthusiasts will find that their E36 M3 is now capable of tackling twisty mountain roads, dominating the track, or simply delivering an exhilarating daily driving experience.

In conclusion, upgrading the suspension and installing coilovers on a BMW E36 M3 is a well-loved enthusiast modification that can elevate the driving experience to new heights. By enhancing handling, reducing body roll, and optimizing control, these upgrades ensure that this iconic sports car continues to deliver the ultimate driving pleasure for years to come. Whether you’re chasing lap times on the track or seeking a more spirited drive on the open road, the E36 M3’s suspension and coilover upgrades are your gateway to an unparalleled driving adventure.
