Custom BMW Dssrs
We make over 95 dssr combos for all kind of OEM BMWs. However, sometimes, (especially with motor swaps), Customers may require a custom DSSR length. We can make it! Great for E30, E36 and E46 applications.
How it works:
You must specify what center to center dimension on the selector rod you need. At the moment, we are only making straight units (no bent, kinks, etc). We will build it exactly to the dimension you specify so make sure you supply the correct dimensions. Dimensions must be in MM and be in a 5mm increment. Meaning we will not make a DSSR that is 122mm, but can make a 120mm or 125mm DSSR. International orders and large DSSRS (over 240mm in length) may require shipping price adjustments after the order is placed. We will reach out to you after the order is placed if any adjustments in shipping costs are necessary. TURN AROUND IS 4 WEEKS.
So what's a DSSR?
Well, it stands for dual shear selector rod. A DSSR will spread the torsional force on both sides of the selector rod instead of the OEM piece which connects from one side only. Based on the concept of the E30 M3 DTM cars of legend! Going to a DSSR in your E36 will mean less play in the shifter, (decreases side to side motion). This means a more precise and smooth shift every time. Now to the details. Our DSSR is made of stainless steel and then tig welded right here in our shop in Westminster CA, USA. Please note: Compatible with OEM style shifter only (some shifters will need to be slightly filed down to fit).
EVERY CUSTOM DSSR SELECTOR ROD KIT INCLUDES
- Center to center dimensions to exact customer specs
- Necessary hardware
- Stainless steel finish
- Fully tig welded
Step 1: With a flat head screwdriver remove the locking clip by pushing on the inside lip of the clip to slide it off the selector rod on the shifter side on selector joint side.
Step 2: Wiggle and pull the selector rod until it's free on both ends. Pay attention to the bends of the selector rod and how it came off as it will be your guide on how to install the DSSR in the proper direction.
Step 3: Grab your garagistic DSSR and starting with the selector joint side first line up the holes on the DSSR with the selector joint. It should be a tight fit but if its too tight open the tabs a bit till you achieve proper fitment. Once aligned slide the provided pins in with a washer on each side followed by the c-clip to lock it in. Repeat on the shifter side.
Notice: If you upgraded to a Z3 shifter you will have to shave down the sides of the shifter for the DSSR to fit
