Matching Shock & Spring Package
Comparable to a H&R Super Sport or Race spring - aggressive upgrade over stock
Vastly improved handling but with less ride comfort
This H&R Sport Cup Kit is for drivers who want that extra edge from a stiffer suspension but without the expense and complexity of coil overs. The E46 Sport Cup Kit is a more aggressive version of the Touring kit. The ride height lowers the center of gravity and roll center even more and the springs are stiffer for more control over body motions and weight transfer. The Sport Cup Kit lowers the ride height as much as 2.1" in front and 1.7" in the back. The springs are still progressive rate so the ride stays compliant on small bumps but quickly gets stiffer. Overall, they are about 50% stiffer than the stock original springs. Lowering amount will be less if replacing the factory sport suspension. If you want a very precise and firm suspension, and ride quality is secondary, the Sport Cup Kit is superior to the Touring or any other shock/spring package we offer. This package fits with the stock strut and shock mounts but front camber plates are recommended because of the increased front negative camber.
This H&R Cup Kit is a tuned shock/spring package for the E46 coupe and sedan. H&R matches a set of springs to performance shocks for a perfectly setup and functioning suspension package. Instead of mixing and matching springs with shocks, H&R has tailored each shock for the specific model, taking into account spring rates, chassis setup, and suspension motions. Without the shocks and springs engineered together the suspension may have incorrect travel or be a mis-match for spring rate (under-dampened) or too stiff. This E46 Cup Kit addresses all of that.
