BMW Drift Angle Tie Rods
Application for BMW’s Below
-100% bolt on replacement tie rod
-Up to +25% angle over stock
-70% stronger on stress analysis via larger ball joint, shaft and more durable liner
-Works on any kit that uses stock length tie rod.
Ideal mod for street/drift/rally cars because it doesn’t change, geometry, bolts on utilizing factory mounting only (no adaptors), and is a much stronger replacement option that adds angle. These have been tried and tested at The School Of Drift, as well as on Chelsea DeNofa’s cars.
*The photo is on a 100% stock 318ti with 10mm wheel spacer that has been aligned to the same specs before and after installing the tie rods.
*Additional wheel clearance may be necessary depending on the width, offset, and diameter of your wheels. Most OEM wheels and setups will require a 10mm wheel spacer and associated hardware.
Jack up the car and use jack stands!
Use a flathead screwdriver to open up the dust boot clamps. Once open, remove them from the dust boot. (Use zip ties or safety wire when reinstalling)
Slide the dust boot toward the outer tie rod end. This allows access to the inner tie rod end nut.
Measure the distance between the flange of the tie rod to the locking nut for the outer tie rod. You’ll want to get this as close as possible when reinstalling.
Loosen the inner tie rod end using a wrench or channel locks. If you do not have a wrench this large, you can use an adjustable wrench. Unscrew and remove tie rod end from vehicle.
There will be a limiting washer on the inside of the tie rod. You will need to remove this if you wish to add steering angle. Leave this if you already have the maximum angle and you’re using this for strength and replacement.
Swap the dust boot and rubber boot ring over to the Drift tie rod.
Then install into vehicle by reversing the steps above. Remember to reinstall the dust boot which can be safety wired or zip tied. Once you are done, have the vehicle professionally aligned and rack is centered, this will ensure proper tire wear.
Once aligned, make sure that the inside of the tire is not rubbing on the frame rails, sway bar, or anything in the wheel well. Most OEM cars with OEM wheels will require a 10mm wheel spacer and associated hardware to make use of this angle. More angle requires more inner clearance.
Alignment suggestions. The more toe out you put the more the car will dart negatively on the street.
Street car- 1/16 inch total toe in
Street and drift car - 0 total toe
Drift car only - 1/8 inch total toe out
These are for off road use only. We are not responsible for any issues or acts related to the installation of these parts. Please have a professional install and align your vehicle.
