316i steering problems.
I have a 1995 E36 316i and have replaced the 15 inch steel wheels with 17 inch alloys from another 3 series. Unfortunately, they seem to have come from an E46 not an E36 as i first thought! Are the offsets for these two wheels different as the steering has been affected. On certain road surfaces the kick-back/tram-lining has dramatically increased, almost yanking the steering out of my grip! Also, at dead centre, the steering has become more vague than usual. Q. Will fitting spacers solve the problem or could i machine the alloys for a different offset. Failing this should i find alloys from an E36 as i am on a tight budget.
The front bushes were replaced with Power-flex M3 style adjustable ones.
If i reset them for more castor (i don,t know how much yet), will it help sort out the problem and remove the vagueness and tram-lining ect.
Any feed-back at all would be much appreciated at this point!
