I have a suggestion that will give your theory a little more factual 'weight'...

Your calculations should factor in the progressive spring rate of every aftermarket lowering spring on the market.

The current crop of lowering spring for the M3 will all have different progressive spring rates, so they will all behave a little different with the OE shocks and struts.

From my perspective, Dinan and Eibach got it right...and everyone else got it wrong.
I was thinking exactly the same thing ...

More factors / measurements should be added to your theory to make it more accurate ! But I like the topic and the effort you put to start the ball rolling

BTW Richard , I really like the "Blue" Springs
