I checked that, and they look fine. I'm going to try taking off the wheel spacers and see if that solves the problem.

I will keep it clean and original, and try to keep the miles low so some day someone else can enjoy this ride.

I love driving this car, but here is my thing. I need a truck for work. I just put $2000 into this car. I put it on ebay to see if I could sell it for 11,500. Someone who collects E30 should have this piece. I feel bad driving this car and putting mileage on it. Its so much driving the car with the 4.10 lsd

...Have you thought about keeping it and getting a truck?

The maintainence on my e30 costs more than the payments on my 06 f-150 though so I feel your pain.

The E30 is what all actual driving enthusiasts are after. It's an unpretentious machine, quietly capable of spectacular feats of handling. It's light, simple design is rugged enough to run against $400k rally cars, but on the street it' communicative chassis delights even the most disinterested driver. It really is one of the world's ultimate driving machines
