Well I just picked my 325is up at the mechanic, (had the rear bearings replaced, doing the front myself) anyway, after paying that 400.00 dollar bill he tells me that the leak in the front end is a bad steering rack and weeping oil pan. The oil pan I can live with by increasing oil grade and its only a drip or two every few days. The rack needs attention.
He qouted me 575.00 for the existing to be rebuilt and put back in. My question is, how difficult is it to replace with a Z3 rack? I would like something more responsive and would love to do it myself. I know this is
something that can be done, but I dont know the specifics, like parts list and technique. DIY is therapy for someone like me, but messing up a perfectly running car isnt.
Also, what should be replaced at the same time as a rack. Thanks in advance, I dont really know what avenue to take here
