Re: Rear Spring and Bump Stop Removal (Early cars)

My car is 89, and it was surprisingly simple procedure when BBZ helped me fit the eibachs. From memory it was wheel off, compress the spring and remove....might struggle getting spring clamps in the gap, so used a crowbar to compress the spring.

Suggest insuring for 12, retaining any NCBs that apply to full term policies, then switch to 'laid up' cover for the months you don't plan to drive, ensuring your car is still protected whilst offroad. Normally any broker specialising in Classic policies do this, and is one of the options from BMWCC...
