E36 Compact what shafts

Postby Bimsy » Sun Feb 26, 2017 5:32 pm

Hi All

I have an E36 compact with a medium case diff fitted and was wondering what shafts do I use? E30 325?
Please help, Cheers

Coincidentally I've just fitted a medium case LSD to my 318ti today! I've used the small case output flanges and the ti shafts, seems to work and the driveshafts aren't over compressed which was my biggest concern due to the extra width of the diff.
I believe the ideal setup is medium case e30 output flanges and shafts
