The stock E9/E10 rear subframes does not allow you to align the rear wheels. This problem carried onto future subframes like the E28 and the E30. Alignment is a critical point in how your car handles and wears tires. Especially important in performance driving events such as tracking/auto-crossing. A must when lowering your car. We make and sell camber/toe correction brackets to require critical welded and alignment for those of you who can weld.
If you want a bolt up solution then this is it! This is the E9/E10 exchange program. You send your stock straight/rust-free subframe in, we add camber/toe adjustment brackets and send it back! This is a bolt up way to get an adjustable subframe that has both camber and toe adjustment with eccentric hardware. Send us back your STRAIGHT/RUST-FREE core and we will refund you $150. If you want your subframe powdercoated (most colors) it will be $75 additional. You can choose to have us source a subframe core if you cannot send yours in first, however some of these subframes have extra provisions such as dual hanger, brackets etc etc) We cannot ensure that you will get a unit just like the one in your car. Although it will physically bolt up, you may have extra, or be missing sensor brackets/hangers, etc. That is why we recommend you send us your subframe in advance!
Do not be fooled by inferior kits consisting of bent sheet metal tabs that are flimsy and inferior. The fitment is poor on the eccentric bolt which increases the likelihood your car will go out of alignment over time or if driven aggressively. We have had customers get their cars out of alignment in a SINGLE track event with those kits!
To ensure a quality and more durable part, we now powdercoat all of our subframes at no additional cost. If you do not supply a core and we must source one, then add another week. So anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks depending on options. Supplying your subframe speeds the process along. You can use the box it comes in to ship your old subframe back. Your reworked subframe will come with our eccentric hardware. If you choose to send your core in to be worked, you will not be charged the $150 core. If you will sending in your core after you received the rework you will be charged the $150. Once we receive your core we refund you with 7-9 days using the method you paid with.
This will explain the core options.
If you chose "I will supply my subframe upfront". You will not pay the $150 core charge upfront. We will wait until we get your subframe which is why you are not charged. This option is the fastest. Supplying your subframe speeds the process along. If we must source a core then this adds a week to turn around time.
Providing us your core is the best way to ensure it is identical to what is on your car. While E9 and E10 subframes are all functionally the same fit there are minor differences in routing tabs, exhaust hanger pick up points etc across models that we do not differentiate between. All of the subframes we stock will work across the model cars that are listed here, but if we are not re-working your subframe expect that there may be some minor differences between what you receive and what is on your car.
If you chose "I will return my subframe after", then you will be charged the $150 upfront. This will also add a week to the turn around time because we must source a core to modify for you. Subframe may not have same provisions as yours.
If you choose "I will not be sending in my core" then you will be charged the $150. This will also add a week to the turn around time. Subframe may not have same provisions as yours.
CORES MUST BE RETURNED IN 30 DAYS FOR A REFUND. ALL CORES RETURNED AFTER 30 DAYS ARE ONLY ELIGIBLE FOR STORE CREDIT NO EXCEPTIONS. ALL CORES MUST BE IN OEM UN MODIFIED CONDITION, WE DO NOT ACCEPT PREVIOUSLY MODIFIED COMPONENTS FOR CORE. SERIOUS RUST ISSUES, MAJOR CRACKS, OR BENT SUBFRAMES ARE ALSO NOT ACCEPTED AS A CORE.
