Springs

What kind of lowering springs are people running? Will just springs affect DDC?

I've seen quite a few F56 with CravenSpeed Lowering springs. I'm a fan of the drop, and it should not hamper DDC at all.

I am wrestling with the idea of springs. I have DDC but like the ride in sport most of the time. My experience with all cars except a couple , E46 M3 on ACS springs for one...the ride diminished. I want to close the gap but not diminish the ride.

I just installed AST springs yesterday and am pretty happy with them.

I ran NM springs for a couple of years. Never had a problem.

Lowering and camber

I’m curious, if I do springs on my mini will the camber cause my wheel to hit my strut as there is little clearance between my aftermarket rim and stock strut?

Depends on your aftermarket wheel spec. I actually gained clearance with my aftermarket wheels

None since only two of the dozens of shops in my area were willing to install them in the first place and they wanted $900 and $1200 plus the cost of an alignment.
