Default Re: E36 subframe

I have done some of the front subframe/crossmember reinforcements before. If yours is broke you would need to either replace it and weld in reinforcements or repair the cracked areas with good deep penetrating welds, and then add the reinforcement plates

The cross member doesn't have arms... but if there are cracks on the cross member where the engine mounts bolt up you can simply weld in reinforcement plates, no need to replace the whole thing.

Engine support brackets are unique to the engine and I was going to say the cross member was the same across all e36's but according to RealOEM the M3 part is unique also... I'm not sure what the differences are.


Thanks Dave

Have ordered some AKG reinforcement plates and once I drop subframe will check the welding job and cracks on the existing subframe. Iím at pick-a-part regularly so will take some measurements on a 6 cylinder car see if thereís any difference.
