The rear diff and the rear subframe are both equally lifted 4", I built blocks to lift everything the same amount.

If it's an EA82 you didn't hurt a damn thing by breaking the belt. As a matter of fact, any engine prior to 1997 (and even some early 1997 models) was non-interference. So you, my friend, are GOLDEN!!!

Hey man, your blocks are in the mail and on the way! Oh, and your engine is fine, EA82 motors are non interference so if you lose a belt its no big deal.

Not quite so cuty a dry.

all EA82 are non interference.

So are all EJ18, and all the early EJ22, non-interference

However ALL DOHC motor(2.5) are interference.

also, ea81 is an interference engine (assuming ea71 is as well) , but since you're running a timing gear you don't have to worry about belts breaking....

But rarely, you can have a gear break, and you'll bent the push rods... ask Subiemech85 :)

Timing belt changed(with some help from Bill). So i decided to test fit the 32's. I also swaped out the rear combination coils for a combination of Sedan Coils and Wagon coils and i got a 5" strut block from Bill. Its sitting pretty level now.

Dude, I just saw your ride in Lafayette today. I was riding the sweet black old BMW. It looks pretty cool but I noticed your camber is WAY off. You should get that fixed before you wreck your tires. Those wheels look sweet!

The camber is off because he wanted a little bit extra lift on the front struts, so it has 4" lift blocks on the engine crossmember and 5" on the struts, which will create possitive camber.

If I was going to keep the Sedamn as a DD I would fix the camber. Once I drop a motorcycle engine and trans under the hood I wont drive it nearly as much so im not to concerned with the camber. Not only that my 5 min commute is going to turn to an hour at the end of this month....either that or im unemployed. Were you in a diesel BMW?
