Advantages to upgrade your steering rack to an E36/E46 rack in your E30
- Quicker Steering Ratio - All E36/E46 3-series steering racks have a quicker lock-to-lock steering ratio then the E30 which results in a much more crisp and precise steering feel. No more "school bus" feeling steering. A massive upgrade.
- Availability - Good condition E30 steering racks are becoming harder to come by in good used condition and later model steering units are much more readily available and priced nearly the same if not cheaper in many cases. Even if you are not interested in the performance upgrade this may end up as a more practical replacement for an aged/leaking steering rack.
