Did a search and found lots of shock replacement threads, nothing on springs only.
My question is: Can you replace just the springs on BMW OEM shocks front and rear?

So it's probably something I shouldn't do in my garage? Sounds a little more complicated than just swapping springs?

So I called BeemerShop and talked to Ted Porter.
He convinced me that I am not in need of a new rear shock or spring unless the shock itself is bad, which I don't think it is.
At my weight and loadouts the current rear shock/spring is right for me.
However, he was amazed that at my mileage, 54K, that I haven't had any front shock issues and advised me not to go to far from home on my bike?
Said he sells front shocks 2 to 1 compared to rear.
Has anyone heard of this front shock issue? I do believe it is with WC models,
