RD sport VS. B&G

Ok So I have read plenty of threads stating that the RD sport springs have the lowest drop but when I look at online advertizing places B&G claims 1.2 front and 1 rear. Am I missing something?

Dang that's a nice drop. Any other mods (bump stops, moddified upper mounts) combined with the springs to preserve as much of the factory ride as possible?

Yup, just E36 bumpstops, no modified upper mounts.

Looks like a functional drop vs. the slammed look which I don't like. Too bad they aren't in stock anywhere.

You and I are/were in the same boat. I was looking for any of those 3 and was fortunate enough to find an old RD for sale thread where someone actually still had them.

Anyhow, i'll be running 19x11's in the rear with 295s and if I rub AT ALL, I will be ordering Swifts (my first choice) as soon as they come back in stock and selling the RD's.
