Why do you need one?
When lowering your car (BMW E30 / E36 / E46) the front end geometry goes wrong. The main purpose of the kit is to correct these geometry issues.
The steering adapter changes control arm pivot point vertical distance by 30mm correcting the roll-center and camber curve.
Tie rod end pivot point is also changed by 30mm in vertical direction which corrects the bump steer curve, the pivot point is additionally moved closer to the control arm pivot point changing the lever ratio which gives you quick steering ratio.
Perfect triangular control arm design allows very rigid, lightweight construction that in addition of all other benefits stated above, is highly desired for circuit racing applications. All control dimensions are adjustable, this also allows use of many different combinations such as spindle/knuckle swap on other chassis for example E30 5-lug swap.
