At last, the wait is over. We have assembled one of the highest quality steering shaft solutions for your early model E30. Over the years the stock E30 steering shaft u joints wear out and your steering becomes sloppy. To resolve this, we worked with a company that designs steering systems for NASCAR. These u joints are machined specifically for the E30 BMW chassis. They come preassembled on a robust splined shaft, unlike many competitors using a square bar. Each shaft comes machined with a locking groove on each end for the set screws to securely attach. The precision u joints use caged needle bearings with a slight preload to completely eliminate backlash. The bearing trunion is a single piece of hardened chromevanadium tool steel. The grease seals are high durometer fluorocarbon o rings in compression against the end surfaces of the needle bearing cups. This means the seals will resist sustained ovenlevel heat and will retain the bearing grease under severe conditions.
Each steering shaft comes preassembled. Please note that the u joints do have a specific clocking. If you take apart the shaft please keep note of how the joints are clocked on the shaft.
*Fits early model non airbag E30s only
**Will fit stock steering rack or upgraded E36/E46/Z3 steering rack
