Suspension Kits

Don't be bottoming out or bouncing down the road because of an old, tired suspension system. Pelican's suspension kits contain the necessary parts to service, refresh or replace the vehicles suspension components.
Uber Kit for E36
For those of you looking for the ultimate in handling for your BMW, we offer the Uber-Kit. This kit contains the Bilstein PSS or PSS9 front and rear shocks and coilover springs kit, heavy duty rear upper shock mounts as well as Eibach fully adjustable sway bars. If you take your car out to the track, this is the kit for you. NOTE: Adding lowering springs to your BMW will require the use of adjustable control arms to bring the rear wheel camber back to OEM specification.
Turner Motorsports Adjustable Rear Camber Arms for Stage 3 and Uber Kits
Installing lowering springs on your E36 will result in increased negative camber on the rear wheels. In order to adjust the rear camber, you'll need to install a set of adjustable camber arms. Turner Motorsports offers two bushing styles to meet your needs, a solid Rod-end or Rubber Bushing end. The high range of adjustment allows a full racecar setup or a heavily lowered car to maintain factory specifications. Aluminum camber arms are designed as a lightweight component thereby reducing wear and tear on other, more critical parts (rear subframe, control arm bushings, etc) Each camber arm weighs only 2.5 lbs making for a total of 5 lbs for both parts (stock camber arms weigh 3 lbs each) TMS Camber Arms use hardcoat anodized aluminum, stainless steel turnbuckles, and stainless rod ends to all but eliminate corrosion from getting into the threads and making adjustment difficult. CNC-machined double shear design for ease of installation, high strength, and choice of outside bushing material. But we do suggest using with BMW rear trailing arm bushing # 33-32-6-775-551 for best performance (These bushings are included with all Pelican Uber Kits). Easy and simple to adjust, the main adjustment point is out by the wheel so there is no need to work around the exhaust or subframe to adjust camber.

Turner Motorsport Adjustable Front Camber Plates for Stage 3 and Uber Kits
The custom-made TMS adjustable camber plates for the E36 provide up to 4 degrees of negative camber. These beautifully made aluminum camber plates have solid no-play spherical bearings that are ideal for racing or high performance track events. These camber plates are nearly identical to the BMW Motorsport version with a few TMS improvements. These units replace the rubber upper strut bearing and are easily adjusted by loosening the 3 factory nuts and sliding the camber plate in and out. Because of the clearances between the spring and the body of the car these are suggested for use with coil-over front struts only, using a 60mm, 2.25" or 2.5" ID race spring.

Dinan Shock and Strut Tower Braces

Dinan Strut and Shock Tower Braces help to maintain the structural integrity of the towers over the life of the vehicle as well as providing sharper handling by reducing flex under harder cornering conditions. The attractive brushed aluminum and carbon fiber braces may be installed in conjunction with any of the Dinan Suspension Systems or the stock components. The end brackets are machined for precise fitment over the strut tower reinforcements for a clean and solid installation.

H&R PCS Coil Over Kits

Like H&R's original Coil-Over Suspension Kit, PCS Damper Adjustable Coil-Over Kits are engineered for street use, but have a number of new features designed for the enthusiast who desires a manual shock dampening feature. In addition to state-of-the-art inverted damper technology and adjustable ride height, PCS Damper Adjustable Coil-Over Kits feature an external adjustment knob that allows the user to simultaneously adjust rebound and compression. Nose-diving under hard breaking is virtually eliminated, which effectively reduces braking distance. And unlike traditional twin-tube shock absorbers, H&R's monotube gas shock absorbers eliminate foaming of the damper oil, even under extreme conditions.

H&R TRAK+ Wheel Spacers

When it comes to all-out cornering performance, one rule applies: wider is really, truly better. H&R TRAK+ wheel spacers let you balance the handling and performance of your car to suit your aggressive driving style, and without spending the time, money and trouble of springing for bigger wheels and tires. Most manufacturers leave 20 to 30mm of extra space between the wheels and the fenders, to suit arcane regulations or to leave space for flapping tire chains. These light-alloy spacers push your existing wheels or even your hot, aftermarket alloys out to fill the wheelwells properly, giving you better cornering, better aerodynamics and even better looks.

DR Series (6-40mm Track Widening)
This spacer is fitted between the wheel and hub, using longer wheel bolts (ordered separately). Please check type of bolt head (taper or round and diameter) and shaft length before ordering.

DRA Series (6-60mm Track Widening)
This Spacer is fitted to the hub with special wheel bolts and has new threaded holes for existing wheel bolts.

NOTE: ALL DRA kits come complete with all necessary wheel bolts, studs and nuts to mount the adapter to your original hub. These will be used in connection with the existing parts fitted to the vehicle.
