Post BMW 550i xdrive front only dinan springs?

Hey guys,

I have a 2016 BMW 550i xdrive with 80k miles and my front struts need replacement due to creeking and vibrations and i want to install Dinan Lowering Springs.

I know it comes with front and rear springs and i was wondering, would it be a problem to install only the front springs and not the rear at the same time?

I want to do the rear also but i dont want to blow a ton of money all at once on because i would replace the rear struts when installing the rear struts.

Any thoughts on installing only the front dinan lowering springs and not the rear until later?

Also i have DHP the dynamic handling package on my f10 with active roll bars, would installing only the front dinan lowering spring without the rear affect it negatively?

hi, itís better to install all the springs at once... I canít say about Dinan, I use Eibach myself, I really like it, itís moderately stiff and pleasantly handling car

Would it be a problem if i only do the front because i am replacing the front struts and was going to do it at the same time and the rear i was going to do after since i was quoted $1000 in labor for the rear spring install.

That is pretty high for the rears... The fronts are a PITA but the rears are much easier...
