the most out of a vehicle!
How to Install Raceland BMW E30 Coilovers
BMW E30 Installation
To begin, remove the lug bolts and front rim from the vehicle.
On the backside of the caliper remove the two bolts holding the brake to
the hub. Pull the caliper off the rotor and position it out of the way
ensuring that it is not hanging from the brake line.
Locate the speed sensor attached to the rear of the hub and remove the
mounting allen bolt. Once the bolt is removed, twist and pull the sensor to
detach it from the hub.
This speed sensor will also be attached to the top of the brake shield.
Unclip the wiring from the shield and move aside.
You will now being to remove the hub assembly from the vehicle. To start
remove the nut holding the control arm ball joint to the hub.
Now on the other side of the hub, remove the nut holding the tie rod arm to
Often times your tie rod end will be wedged into the mount after the nut
has been removed. To release this, use a hammer and with moderate force,
strike the hub just above the tie rod arm bracket.
On the shock body, remove any wiring that may be clipped onto the unit.
Simply pull these clips to remove.
Like the tie rod end, you may need to strike the control arm bracket above
the ball joint to break the taper loose. You may also need to pry the joint
away from the hub.
Now under the hood, locate the three nuts holding the upper strut mount to
the vehicle. Remove these nuts keeping in mind that these are the last
mounting nuts holding the shock to the vehicle.
You are now able to pull the shock out of the wheel well to begin the next
Due to the spring tension on the top mount, you'll want to use spring
compressors to remove this tension from the strut and mount.
Once the unit is secure in the spring compressors it will be safe to remove
the top piston bolt from the shock. When this bolt is removed it is now
safe to release the tension on the spring compressors.
Using a pipe wrench or other strut tool, remove the top cap holding the OEM
shock insert into the shock body. The OEM shock insert will now slide out
of the housing.
Slide the new Raceland shock insert into the OEM housing. Using the
supplied Raceland replacement strut cap, tighten this cap completely to
secure new insert into housing.
The spring new spring seat will thread on to the top of this new cap. Slide
the Raceland spring perch over the piston, line up the threads, and tighten
the perch to the cap with the supplied wrench.
The OEM bump stop will be removed from the old shock, trimmed, and reused
with the new coilover setup.
Position the Raceland spring on the perch with the smaller end of the
spring on the bottom.
Place the OEM top mount onto the new spring and thread the new piston bolt
onto the strut. While the shock and spring are shorter than the OEM pieces,
you still may need to use spring compressors for this step. Tighten this
Now that the shock is fully assembled, feed the unit into the wheel well
while lining up the three top mounting studs to the shock tower.
Back under the hood; reinstall the three nuts holding the top mount to the
Now position the hub in the correct direction and push the lower ball joint
into its mounting location. Tighten the ball joint bolt.
The speed sensor will now be reinstalled. Remember that the sensor will
slide in offset and twist into place before you can insert the allen bolt
to tighten the sensor to the hub.
Re-clip the sensor line to the back of the brake shield.
Make sure the brake pads are in place and slide the brake caliper back into
its correct position on the rotor. Install the two bolts that hold the
caliper to the hub.
Push the tie rod end into its mounting tab on the hub and reinstall the
Re-clip any sensor lines you removed from the strut body.
Now that everything is secure you can reinstall the front wheel.
