B8s are cheaper from Tire Rack and they're an authorized seller, which will be important if you need to claim on the warranty. I've heard Bilstein requires receipts unlike Koni which is more lenient with the terms of their lifetime warranty.

I have a very important question the 29569-1 springs from h&r say the lower the front by 1.5 in and the rear by 1.3. So does this mean my car will sit lower in the front than the rear?

I bet they were used and didn't last long at all. If they weren't then where did you get them from

Once in awhile I see Bilsteins at Pick and Pull. At $7.99 each you really can't lose that much.

Yeah I guess, but I'm not willing to pay $400 labor for them just to get blown out in a month.

I love DIYing but suspension especially compressing springs, but I would rather have professionals do. This specific topic I would rather not work on. I found someone who is willing to align and install all of my struts and springs for $500. If anyone could find me a good cheap new pair of Bilstein B8 Sports for my E320 1995 Sedan less than $466 after shipping and tax or 29569-1 H&R Springs under $246 after shipping and tax would be happy. I would be fine buying used springs so PM me if u have H&R springs.
