        haha!

        Well I called him back - he had priced out a few things he had laying around. M3 springs, housings, swaybar, brakes, and hubs. LOL. Before I heard the price I said to him "I only need hubs and strut housings." So he is calling me with a price. I guess he has a set of housings that he cut the spring perch off already...so that will be cool for the GC set-up.

          Do I need the sway bar from the M3 if I do the swap to e30 strut housings?

            no, it is an upgrade over stock. make sure you get the swaybar links.

                Make sure you get the steering knuckles. They attach to the bottom of the strut tube with four bolts. The 4 lug strut housings have these permanently attached, but on the 5 lug housing, you have to bolt them on separately.

                  The guy is milking it - now he wants to put a bilstein coil over kit on it just to sell me the housings. :roll:

                    And thank god you do. That's the #1 benefit to the 5-lug setup... the only thing you can't do with 4 lug struts.
