    Will 1995 M3 front suspension components work for 5 lug?

    I read somewhere that they need to be 96+?

    I didn't think they changed anything except the engine S50 to S52 in the 95-96 model year.

    I'm planning on buying a 95 m3 for the drivetrain and suspension but if they suspension won't work I'll probably pass on it. Anyone know?

    Yes, but you'll want 96+ control arms. And the rear suspension is worthless for you, except to sell so you can buy either ti or mz3 trailing arms. You'll also want e30 springs all around and e30 front strut mounts.

      Alright sweet thanks a lot. So basically all I'll be running are the brakes and hubs off of the m3?

        And the front struts. And maybe rear shock mounts.

          Great thanks again. Do you happen to know if there is any difference in the steering racks or should the 95 one work fine?

                I think the knuckle geometry was different in 95 too

                  I believe the 95 M3 rack is progressive
