Offroad Long Travel Suspension - Was it Worth It?

Thanks to Ebay Motors for sponsoring this video! CLICK here to search through thousands of cars and parts & list those project cars and spare parts sitting around!

This is weird but for the first time ever on Money Pit we actually want to make a car sit higher! Unlike the Money Pit Miata, we’ll be absolutely thrashing the e36 in the dirt which means rocks, lots of rocks. So in order to avoid as many rocks as possible we need to make the e36 sit taller. Today we’re dropping in a new set of long travel suspension coilovers and hopefully it’ll be worth all the money and effort we’re throwing into the pit!

We have a new channel!

Money Pit is where you get to learn about cars as we work on them. Each ep we’ll breakdown how each component works and then we’ll upgrade it. Join us in our journey to build cool cars, learn about them, and drive the crap out of them!

Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

  • My rear springs on a 3 door did not come out so easily I did the danger method I jacked axle to compress spring and bound it with giant zip ties and made a bomb lol don't recommend doing it that way I'm kinda surprised they came out easy for u lol obviously u done this before ha

  • In the previous project cars you needed to do an alignement after fitting coil overs. Not with this car?

  • If Your still running a stock worn suspension, then it is absolutely worth getting new coil-overs when possible! The performance will be improved by years of wear and tear. It gives you the opportunity to get more, into something you would like performance wise! 🤘

Starting with structural then mechanical, just some tips/tricks would be super helpful! Thanks guys, love the channel and hopefully I too can one day have a Majestic Kentucky Cobra.

  • I checked out the BC Racing website - they say their coilovers can only lower the car, not lift - even verified with the support in chat. How did you guys achieve the extra height, was it a custom order or a different spring rate? I'm trying to lift my own car a little bit too and can't find anything in this price range
