new steering rack
ok i have a 93 320i, and the steering rack is screwed, the dealership decided that it would cost about $1000 to fix and i dont like that. it wasnt life threatening or anything but i think the 'skip' in the steering wheel i can feel when i turn the steering wheel slightly is because of that. the other way i know something is stuffed up is because the power steering oil is dirty so something is rubbing on the inside!
now, i found a second hand one, from a car thats done about 87,000 miles, its a 1994 318ti. the guy will charge me $110 for it or around there! But what i want to know is does any steering rack from a e36 fit any other e36? is it hard to install it myself? and will my steering lock still be good, coz right now i can do pretty tight turns!
and i will have it checked by a shop before i install it!
ok hope u guys can help...
