Anyone on Springs or Sleeves that needed to replace their stock shocks?

leaning towards Lowering Springs or KW sleeves but worried about replacing my stock shocks (EDC equipped). I had a tsx with lowering springs before, and the shocks began to leak after about 25-30k miles. I'm not really looking to drop $$$ on a set of KW V3's at the moment.

Anybody using their m3 as a daily driver with springs or sleeves that had to replace their shocks??

Dinan or Eibach is what you need, minimal drop keeping stock shocks in mind. Sleeve over kits are also ok if not dropping the car too much.

I posted this same question not even half way down the 1st page of this forum. It looks like there aren't a lot of people who have had to replace the OEM dampers yet so it tough to say. I'm at 58k miles and have had my Eibachs on for about 30k miles. I don't see any fluid leaking from the damper bodies. The ride does seem to be getting rougher but that could also be due to my tires wearing out.
