EMD Springs ..steering wheel shakes at 80mph

So i finally installed the EMD springs on my BMW M4. i gave it two weeks to fully settle in and got an alignment and wheels balanced.

my review:

1. I love the stance ..super aggressive
2. i read a lot on the forums that it feels like OEM springs...but it feels nothing like OEM.
3. at 80 mph or if i floor it my steering wheels seems to shake ...I'm not sure if the springs are just stiff that it makes you feel the ground more?

does anyone else have this issue with EMD springs? or is that how aftermarket springs are supposed to feel?

Sounds like you should get your installation checked and also check your wheels to see if it looks like any of your wheel weights may have been knocked off of the wheels while the installer was taking the wheels off or putting them back on? Do you feel the steering wheel vibrate at all at 80mph when cruising at a constant speed? Do you feel any vibration or shaking in your seat at all? Does this happen on all roads?

They can not feel like OEM with such aggressive drop.

yeah it happens on all roads. I feel it mostly when i floor it. I feel like there something pushing the car back. The car is not smooth at all anymore around 80mph and flooring it.


around 40 mph or 50mph constant speed its pretty smooth

I don't have a single complaint about these springs other than it's extremely low with my lip. I would suggest inspecting the install and wheels

Just got mine installed along with the wheel spacers. It rides just like stock to me even in sport +. Did you get a 4 wheel alignment after they were installed? I think that's an important piece. Mine is still just as smooth as it was before under hard acceleration.
