Just like the E30 before it, the E36/Z3 front subframe is known for its weaknesses where the motor mounts attach the motor to the chassis. Over the years, this area sees high stress loads and could eventually fail and to paraphrase SouthPark, you're going to have a bad time. That's where our BMW E36 Front Subframe Reinforcement Kit come in. This kit is designed specifically for repair or reinforcement of the E36 front subframe mounting ears around the engine mount bushing attachment points.
As your E36 ages, the front subframe can crack around the motor mount area; This can especially happen in hard track and autocross use. Installation may require minor grinding as every E36 has had a different life
- Two E36 motor mounts plates
- Two E36 subframe gussets
NOTE - The reinforcements may be connected with tabs as seen in the last product photo. These will simply need to be cut off during the prep phase before welding and installation into your vehicle.
