If you want to swap to 5 lug on your e30 you need this kit to add caster ( place the wheel in the center of the front fender ).
FIT ON BMW E30 ( 318, 325, i, is, e, es ) and more !
Do you want to do a 5 lugs conversion on your 4 lug e30 by using e36 5 lug but there you have a problem … With standard e36 knuckles and control arms your front wheels are not centred in the arch !! To center the wheel in the arch you have to buy offset control arm bushings and 2 new 1996+ e36 m3 control arms that will cost you up to 500$ if you can still find evo’s arms !!! This kit will let you use e36 non-M or M3 complete knuckle assemblies on your e30 control arms.
This is the only affordable solution !! 100% bolt on !!
Parts required for the Front End:
-Complete e36 front knuckles with brake calipers, rotor, hub assembly, wheel, and coilover.
-Stock e30 control arms or e36 non-m3 control arms ( they have the same geometry ). You can also use e46 control arms and grind down the hexagonal control arm bushing end to make it round.
-Use your stock e30 shock top plate and install them on the E36 struts or drill 2 holes on your shock towers to keep the e36 top plates.
-Bolt everything in place, connect all brake lines, bleed your brakes.
-Take a ride !
-This kit is made from zinc plated steel for the housing, UHMW or DELRIN for the bushing.
For every one that don’t want to spend all his money to buy new and ultra rare parts ( now discontinued by the dealer ! )
*Please ensure that you having exactly 20mm diameter at the end of the control that slides into the bushing, some aftermarket control arms may have thick paint that needs sanded off to properly fit into the control arm bushing, please sand the paint down prior installing this kit! The sleeves are designed for moving with the control arm to ensure proper wear protection. They can’t move properly if you force them on, so please sand the end of the control arm to be 20mm in diameter.
*If you have special control arms that are 20.2mm, contact us, we can make you a custom kit easily for free !
