BMW E36 323ic M52 2.5L Steering Parts & Accessories
The steering knuckle unites several critical systems that suspend the chassis; support the drive axles and wheel hubs; mount the brakes; and allow the front wheels to turn when steering. Collision-damaged knuckles can adversely affect any and all of these functions, and make it impossible to properly adjust steering geometry.
The steering rack converts steering wheel rotation into lateral movement of the steering linkages, and uses fluid pressure from the power steering pump to provide steering assist. Trust ECS Tuning to provide you with quality new and remanufactured racks, plus repair parts and recommended steering fluids.
Power steering reservoirs store fluid for the pump and rack, and may contain a filter or strainer to keep the fluid clean. Reservoirs may crack and leak from heat and vibration, and filter replacement requires a fresh reservoir, in some applications. Why not include one in your next fluid service?
Tie rods and tie rod ends transfer steering inputs to the front wheels. Anchored at both ends by ball-and-socket tie rod pivots or bushings, these vital linkages take a constant beating from steering movement and road shocks transmitted by the wheels. Replace worn tie rods and ends to keep your steering taut, responsive, and safe.
Wheels are used to mount the tires, support and steer the vehicle, and transmit both driving force and braking to control vehicle motion. Steel or aluminum, ECS has a huge assortment of both original equipment and aftermarket wheels, plus our own Alzor brand of custom alloys.
