E30 rear lowering springs

Hey guys looking for some rear lowering springs, yes just the rears. I have the eibach ones and they are a bit too soft and bouncy, car squats with minimal acceleration creating wheel rub. Lmk what you got!!

Thanks

So, while I don't have anything for sale, I do have purple Vogtlands on my E30 and have been quite happy with them. I think I paid $200 for a full set off ebay. Here's a pic from a track day at PIR. That's the most I've gotten it to squat. That's under full acceleration after series of fast downhill turns.

I have an S52. I had to roll the rear fenders and am running 15x8 wheels with 225/50 rubber. Looks like you have a little more meat on your car, which could cause issues. What else do you have going suspension-wise?

Not sure, on my turbo car I run these same wheels and tires and have no rubbing issues and the turbo car squads way harder. On this car it just has eibach and bilstein sports, but literally I go to like 3k Rpms when taking off and it rubs. I'll swap the springs that are on my 318i, I'm pretty sure the springs are just worn out

Ive been running 1050lb eibach 5" coilover springs w a 16x8.5 w 0 offset, and the only time it rubs is big bumps at full steering lock. Its way stiff for me, but I bet you could find some 5" coils at the 650-750lb that would work. Only pic I could find of mine for now below.
