They were fine before though, takes a bit of force on the pedal but I could stop in a hurry. FYI I did install hawk hps pads on all corners. Stock calipers....

Yes. I opted for a simple and clean install.

So I realize after I did the Z3 rack swap I didnít take a single picture. Good news, I did something wrong when I did it so Iíll have to redo it and Iíll take pictures this time. The issue is the rack isnít going back far enough to sit in the proper hole on the subframe. If I push it all the way back so the steering knuckle is flush with the rack I canít get the bolt through to tighten it down. If I put just the tip in up to the notched part to fit the bolt the rack doesnít go far enough back to thread the bolt correctly.

Yeah Iím not exactly sure what it is your describing. I did swap to an e36 rack I think it was 95-96 M? I know I have spacers in between the rack and subframe. Perhaps that will help your alignment?

The Z3 rack and e30 rack should be almost identical in dimensions with the only real difference being the spacer used in the Z3 rack.
