You can use a z3 rack like people previously said, also e36 racks fit, namely the m3 rack.

Deleting the power steering has no real benefit. Where you "gain" you directly lose the convenience.

I look at it this way, if you need to delete your power steering, you do it for 2 reasons which have simple solutions.

1. Your p/s system is broken and you can't afford to fix it or are too lazy. Solution: sell your car, you shouldn't have one.
2. You want to decrease your hp loss from parasitic drag. Solution: you're engine is as a powerful as a lawn mower and you should probably be looking at a swap or power adder. The hp loss is negligible from power steering.

Why do you hate the power steering? Because it doesn't work?

What? It's the exact same thing, it just helps you turn at low speed...


Go nuts though.
