Happy New Year - Subframe Edition - E36 Z3
Got to work for the New Year, work days long enough, decided to tackle this in the garage rather than at the shop. Can be a little more patient with it then, and have a drink or two while working to ease the pain
- Randy Forbes rear subframe reinforcement kit
- Ireland Engineering subframe bushings
- Ireland Engineering camber kit
- Rogue Engineering dual ear diff cover
Got started last night and spent half the day today
Control arms, dirty, need to be cleaned!
Randy's reinforcement kit
Rogue Diff Cover
Diff, cleaned and painted
New turbo is ready for the rear end!
And the other toys in the garage!
Happy New Year everyone! Will be working more on this in the evenings, hopefully wrap it up this weekend!

Finally got the car finished up, here's some more pics!
Diff fluid and additive
Subframe cleaned and painted
Old diff mount removed and rear subframe mounting box frame cut open
Subframe and diff ready to go back for fitment of new diff mounting ears
Subframe reinforcement plates tacked in, ready for welding
Lots of welding!
TIG'd diff ears
Camber and toe adjustment plates welded
Painted, in floor battery box removed and filled with a piece of aluminum
New battery tray and smaller battery (1/2 size of stock)
Redid the rear portion of my 4" exhaust for better fitment under the subframe and more clearance to the larger diff cover
THAT ASS! =D
Glad it's done, ready for some boosting now with the new 4094R
