528e steering box (archive)

[ Follow Ups ] [ 5-series (E28) Message Board ] [ Msg. Board FAQ ]

Posted by Demet on June 16, 1999 at 13:11:48:

The 528e steering box seems to only have a certain amount of adjustment until it binds. But even properly adjusted there is still a fair amount of play, about 1 - 2 inches. This doesn't give one confidence on the road as the car wants to dart anywhere but where you point it.

I was wondering if a rebuilt box from BMW would be the best way of fixing this problem or does anyone know of a reputable rebuilder of these things. Aslo does anyone know whether the 535 boxes are interchangable with the 528 and if they have better feel?

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
