    Default Stock ride height

    What is the stock ride height on my car? I think it may have been lowered by the previous owner, as the springs are blue and the ride seems slightly firmer than my brothers e28, also he says it seems to have less body roll.

    It is lowered, at least in the rear (due to the current spring or a broken/dead stock spring, perhaps). Notice the camber.

    I have no idea who makes a blue E34 spring, but there are lots of generics out there.
