Hi there,

I'm looking for a steering rack for my 1990 E30 cab. Needs to be in good condition. Let me know if you have one for sale :)
Ps: I was told you can also replace it with a E36 rack... is that true?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

yeah you can but you need to modify a bit.; the rack doesn't bolt in the same. need spacers and the steering knuckle needs to be shortened due to the longer input shaft. If you're willing to do the work then it will. your turn ratio will be shortened a bit which is the desired result for this swap. You'll pay a premium for a this rack and if you went one step further you could get and e36 M3 which will set you back about 300.00 and still shorten the ratio further. harder to come by

Not ALL e36 m3 racks are shorter, there is only one year and I believe its 95 m3 racks if I'm not mistaken. The rest are the same ratio as a normal e36.

Also have a rack laying around, let me know if you need it.
