BMW E30 to E36/ Z3 Steering Rack Swap Kit (Airbag Version)

Sale price$25.00 USD Regular price$40.00 USD


When swapping a Z3 or E36 steering rack into your E30, most people don't realize that, when installed, the E30 steering column doesn't line up correctly with the E36/ Z3's steering rack splines. This causes a lot of strain on the rubber "u-joint" or "steering coupler" and may cause binding when turning.

This kit resolves this issue by moving and holding the steering column down and to the right (towards transmission tunnel), allowing it to align correctly.

There will also be roughly a 0.5" gap between the top of the rack and the E30 subframe's top mounting bracket. This is where the .5" thick spacers come in. They will fill the gap, allowing you to mount the steering rack without any modification to the E30 subframe.


  • Made from tough .119" thick steel
  • Powder coated wrinkle black
  • Mounts on the inside of the firewall


  • Made from .5" thick 5052 Aluminum
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Allows the use of the OEM steering rack mounting bolts

*Depending on the year and model of E30, you may have to remove the steering column in order to install this onto the inside of your firewall. We had to do so on our 1987 325e.
