E30 M3 steering rack question?
 
The steering rack on my M3 is leaking and needs replacement. I was wondering if a steering rack from a e30 318is could be used as a replacement?

It is a 1988 M3

It will fit, but the ratio will be worse. An e36 rack swap would be a better, and inexpensive solution.

just rebuild ur current rack, its like ~60 dollars for all the new seals.

I say do the e36 rack swap or even better a rack from a 95 M3. Better, newer and quicker.

E36 rack, but it's not a direct bolt in for an m3 I don't think. I think it only is for airbag cars.
