Steering Coupler Replacement U-joint - E10
Get rid of the rubber coupler and go all out with our lightweight Chrome Moly Low-Profile, Needle Bearing Universal Joint. This Universal Joint has a reduced diameter for applications where clearance and weight are primary concerns. The stock E10 rubber steering coupler is known to degrade over time, resulting in a vague and disconnected steering feeling. You'll immediately notice an increase in precision and get sharper steering response. Simplify the steering shaft in your E10 using our bolt-in u-joint.
Why Your E10 May Need a Steering Coupler Replacement
The steering coupler includes a cylindrical rubber busing which ensures the transfer of movement from your E10's steering wheel to its steering rack. The axis of the bushing is perpendicular to the axis of rotation of the BMW steering system. The steering coupler has an inner sleeve that is attached to one of the input and output shafts of the steering sleeve while the outer sleeve is attached to the other shaft. In between the inner and outer sleeve is an elastic, central rubber body which tends to lose elasticity over time and you will notice the disconnect in your E10's steering system. Buying a steering coupler replacement made with lightweight chrome moly for your BMW will allow for improved precision and sharper steering response in your E10.
