  1. Driveshafts

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    After having the mother of all jobs getting the driveshafts out of the rear hubs, both driveshafts will need replacing along with the hubs and wheel bearings. Does anyone know who the OEM supplier is/was? Any other recommendations of which brands are ok/ not ok? For an E36 325. Thanks.

    I'm in need of a new rear left shaft however they seem hard to come by... What other models will fit ? I've looked for 330d/cd/xi/ci/I and not found any. I need one urgently. Mine looks to have the bearing ball case. Many thanks for any advice. Sent from my BLN-L21 using Tapatalk
