      definitely... throw a 4" spring in the back to drop it down and call it a day!

        I desperately want to get rid of the rake, but I can't decide what to roll in the back since the arches are so high

              that'll give you some info... I found that for early model E30's a 5" length was usually still a little high. It seems the people that went with 4" length on high arch E30's had a nice drop. You would want a 2" ID spring size. It also depends on spring rates because a stiff spring will not compress much at all. If it were me I'd do a 4" in a 650lb rate and just play with spring pad sizes to get the rear height you wanted.

                  I like some rake -
                  but would definitely think about removing rear spring pads on that early model..
