1988 735i rear suspension

I'm working on a sagging rear suspension. It got new lowering springs front and back years ago but after the swap, the rear is much lower than the front. The rear sags low. The tailpipe is about 4" from the ground. The tailpipe will hit the road if I go over a shallow pothole.

How do I tell if the car has a leveling system or not? Is it in the VIN?

I looked up parts and it appears the rear leveling system has added upper insulators and shims. Is that correct? The non leveling system doesn't have these parts?

F25 X3 Roof Rack Cross Bars

I have a set of never used cross bars part# 82 71 2 338 614 OEM. Still in the box (though the box has been opened). Located in Randolph, NJ. I believe they will fit any X3 2011-2017

Anyone interested? Make offer. Thanks.

Mega-clag, replace tires?

Hi, I'm driving a 2005 Lotus Elise with Toyo Proxes R888R tires. As the car is very light (< 2,000 lbs.), tires last quite a while. Mine have 24 track days on them, and could probably last another eight or ten. But at the Thunderbolt event a week ago they picked up so much clag and gravel that I couldn't really see any of my own tread. And when some of the clag came off on the straight, it ripped up the bottom edge of the body behind the left rear tire.

I've never seen this much clag. If you were me, would you replace the tires, or am I just going to pick up the same amount of clag at the next event?
