    Default Front shocks

    Hello all, noticed a leak near right front wheel and saw the shock & spring area was damp. I guess the shock is gone.
    How do I know what shocks to buy? 2.5" dust cap, 19mm or 22mm nut, etc.
    Do I need to take it apart to check first?
    Car is 93 M5. Currently Koni adjustables all around w/Dinan springs. I don't mind doing Bilstein sport to save a few bucks.
    Thanks for any help!

    Give Patrick at BMA a call. He'll need the vin number from your car. 888-BMA-3911. They are open on Sat. til 2PM. I been getting my parts from him for about 5 years now and just replaced all four shocks with Bilstein Heavy Duties from BMA on my 92 525. Great service and good prices. They're down in Glendale, CA. and for orders to the Bay Area is next UPS business day in most cases. How you like the Dinan springs?

    Default Front shocks

    I'll give them a call, I deal with them all the time. I thought there may have been an easier way.
    The Dinan springs are pretty good on this car, even w/18" wheels. I have the same springs & shocks on my 525 and it doesn't seem to be the same.
