e30 upgrading from 45mm shocks to 51mm

Recommended Posts

I have a 87 with 45mm shocks.

Would it be worth it if i change it to 51mm

I have 51mm spare.

Also is it straight fit?

No. You need 51mm strut housings to fit 51mm struts. If you have 45mm ones you need to change the entire strut.

Lets say ive got the complete 51mm strut hosing plus shocks.

Would it be a upgrade

How would it affect handling and performance?

upgrade yes,

but not worth doing unless your current shocks are had it, or you want to install lowering springs anyways, etc.
