    Which E46 Steering Rack has 3.0 LTL?

    What year 325i have a 3.0 LTL steering rack? I keep finding conflicting info. From what i can guess its ANY 325i produced from 2002 onwards? Any info I find are about 330s which arent so abundant here unlike 325

      I’d go ZHP. Gold/Yellow tag.

          That’s my plan. Hopefully I can source one.

              '95 M3, for the US market, had a 3 turn LTL steering rack - for what it's worth.

                Where is everyone buying their ZHPs? That's on the list for the new car for sure.

                  I bought mine from Rackdoctor it was years ago, seems like the prices are up a bit now, just like everything. I think you can get them in other places, but this one was cleaned up with new seals with a warranty.

                    To add to this…
                    Rack Doctor is great, as it’s a totally reconditioned product. However, they do require a core. Without one, it’s obviously pricier & the wait time is quite a bit longer. (Like 30 people deep) very popular item.

                      Glad I got mine years ago, I didn't have a core and had no problem getting one from him, just had to pay more.

                        I've pulled a few from the phoenix yards, the yellow and purple racks pop up quite a bit.

                          I've done the TRW rack, it's 3,0 turns and a good linear feel, Love it, any of the E46 rack will be a big improvement over stock E30 rack
