ZF steering rack equivalent

Hi from Australia.
Need some help here to do a cross reference of ZF steering rack number.
The ZF steering rack part number is 7852955352 or 8022576 both lead to the new Bosch number KS01 002 325 is for a LHD vehicle.
Older version number is 7852.974.603

I need an equivalent or compatible RHD rack version that are currently been used on other RHD make vehicles (not necessary BMW marque) that could be retrofitted on my vehicle..
Do you know of such vehicle (make or model) that share this common RHD steering rack that could be used.
Or is anyone able to cross reference the above part number in your system that is mirrored to this LHD version for a RHD conversion.

I look forward to hear from you guys soon.

Cheers from Downunder.
Peter Koh

ZF steering rack equivalent

Hi Tim,

Sorry, I am doing a BMW Alpina Z8 conversion from LHD to RHD. Process will take 4 months.
There is never a RHD version been built for Z8, hence big project to convert, making good headway at the moment.
Hope you can help.

Cheers, Peter

What about a M5 rack, steering shaft and headers? That seems like a good place to start. My guess is that the rack will bolt up but getting some measurements would be a good start.

Any chance of getting some specification on both steering rack 7852955352 and M5? Lock to lock?

Steering rack

Hi Joe,
I have managed to secure a RHD steering rack to suit. It is ZF 7852 955 305.
Conversion is progressing well. See link for hint: https://www.facebook.com/MotorCarsIn...type=3&theater
