X3 Differential Mounts and Upgrades

X3 Differential Mounts and Upgrades Rubber mounts are used to locate the differential to the subframe in RWD BMWs. This is one area that we like to focus on to improve power transfer, response time, and the overall feel of the drivetrain. By using a stiffer bushing you reduce or eliminate the 'wind up' and deflection of the stock rubber differential mounts when power is applied. A solid bushing will not twist when power (torque) is applied. Instead that power is directed to the drive wheels where it will do the most good. Our diff mount upgrades are solid rubber, Delrin, or aluminum kits depending on the application and the intended use. Even though these were developed for our race cars, we put them in a lot of street cars as well. The diff is not directly linked to the wheel and suspension so these are not as affected by bumps and road imperfections. Some additional drivetrain vibration may be felt through the chassis but in our experience it's very minimal. When installing one of our performance differentials make sure you also replace the mounts! And any subframe overhaul should also include solid diff mounts. There's no downside!

E46 non-M Performance Polyurethane Differential Bushing Set

Worn rubber differential mounts will lead to the differential twisting and shifting around in the rear subframe. Not only will this be noisy but it's bad for driver confidence and bad for the chassis as well. Even on fresh rubber bushings the differential has deflection and twist, especially if the car has been modified for more torque. Since the differential is centrally mounted in the rear subframe, with all suspension mounts interconnected, a differential with too much deflection will affect handling and could even damage the rear subframe.

These 88A urethane E46 diff mounts are much stiffer than stock but still not as solid as our Turner aluminum/Delrin bushings. This set will resist twisting much better than the stock rubber mounts. Included are the two front diff mounts and the rear mount in the cover.

Part #: 002447ECS02KT
Price: $89.95 (USD)

Rear Differential Mount - E46, E83 X3, E85 Z4 This is the rear rubber-isolated differential mount. The diff mounts take the bulk of the twisting and binding as power is transmitted through the differential. We use a Meyle HD rubber bushing for the rear mount as it's stronger than the factory part. (33176751808). We also recommend replacing the front differential mount 33171093175MY at the same time.

This item fits the following BMWs:
1999-2005 E46 BMW 323i 323ci 325i 325ci 325xi 328i 328ci 330i 330ci 330xi

Rear Differential Mounts - OEM/Meyle HD Rubber - E46, X3, Z4 These rubber bushings from Meyle are a direct replacement for the stock differential bushings in the E46 3-series, E83 X3 SAV, and Z4 Roadster. If your original bushings are worn (likely around 100,000 miles) these are a great replacement upgrade. The front bushings are the stock OEM type rubber bushings. The rear bushing is a Meyle HD upgrade over stock - about 15% stiffer than the originals. This means the bushing will not flex and twist as much. This puts more power to the wheels since power is no longer used up for 'torquing' the bushing. These are not race bushings; the rubber material is perfectly suitable for street use.

The non-M E46/E83/Z4 models use three differential mounts - two front bushings in the subframe and one rear mount in the diff cover. This set of bushings covers all three. You can opt to include new mounting hardware in the Options list below.

This item fits the following BMWs:
1999-2005 E46 BMW 323i 323ci 325i 325ci 325xi 328i 328ci 330i 330ci 330xi

Part #: E46-MY-DIFF
Price: $75.85 (USD) 
Rear Differential Mounts - Turner Solid Delrin/Aluminum - E46, X3, Z4 Made in the USA These Turner Motorsport solid differential mounts were designed for our championship-winning Grand-Am E46 330s and they are legal in most racing classes where a fully solid aluminum mount is not allowed. To prevent bushing deflection, these E46 diff bushings use Delrin with an aluminum insert. This keeps the differential locked in place which improves handling, feedback, and transfers more power to the wheels. They also last much longer than any rubber mount. If you're tracking your E46 323, 325, 328, or 330 these diff mounts are an absolute must. They can also be used on street cars if slightly higher levels of noise and vibration can be accepted.

This item fits the following BMWs:
1999-2005 E46 BMW 323i 323ci 325i 325ci 325xi 328i 328ci 330i 330ci 330xi
