Just installed the kit I bought including the bolts. Some feedback - after grinding and knocking out the rivets, I discovered the holes left were too small - they were definitely not 7/16". I had to drill out the holes to this size in order for the bolts to go through.

Also, it's pretty much impossible to tighten the allen head bolts with allen head sockets - it would probably work with normal allen wrenches, but I didn't have any that big. I ended up using vice grips to keep the bolts from turning. Normal hex head bolts would have been much easier.

I am in the process of swapping mine and I noticed that also when I went to put it together. Any solution other than drilling them out slightly? and if that is the only option, what size drill bit would I need?

I had bought this kit months ago with the intention of putting my e36 m3 steering rack into my e30. But this week I decided to go ahead and do a whole m50 swap. Do I still need to use the kit or is there anything I need to know or obtain from my '94 e36 donor car to make the swap better/easier?

I can't seem to find this information by searching even though I tried.

Default Order for UK?

Hi,

Are the column spacers also suitable for right hand drive cars (I'm based in the UK)?

If so, how do I place an order??

Thanks!
