Our E30 Rear Suspension Kit has been designed and manufactured to bring the performance and benefits of a Push-rod system to your E30 chassis without the guess-work of starting from scratch. The geometry of our system was analyzed and perfected to ensure our system provides performance while not unbalancing the chassis with the factory front system left in-tact.
Our kit drops in to the E30 chassis utilizing the factory strut towers as precise locating features. This ensures a quick, simplistic installation procedure and greatly reduces potential error in component alignment.
NOTE: Potential purchasers of this kit must be aware that basic fabrication skills (such as fitting and welding) are required for the installation of this system.
Dampers are NOT included in the kit options here. Dampers may be purchased directly from AVO or we may be contacted to include them in your order. Our kit uses a 10″ – 14″ damper. The AVO damper utilized in our kit is the MTC 140/100 found here in single, double and triple adjustable versions. Other dampers can certainly be used. Please contact us for a diagram of the damper specifications.

Kit Variations: Please understand which kit option you are purchasing prior to ordering. Please contact us with any questions regarding what is included in each variation.
Full Kit (using AVO dampers):
- Includes every item in the above detailed list.
Full Kit (using your own dampers):
- This is the complete kit without the misalignment cones and hardware for mounting the dampers as the misalignment cones may differ if the damper bearings vary from the AVO Dampers.
Bare Bones Kit (using AVO dampers):
- This kit includes the complete drop-in frame structure and the rocker assemblies with hardware. It does NOT include the push-rods themselves. This kit is ideal for those who want to make their own push-rods (either machined or welded tube). This price includes misalignment cones for the AVO dampers.
Bare Bones Kit (using your own dampers):
- This is the same kit as listed above without the misalignment cones for the AVO dampers, again they could be different if the damper bearings are not identical to what is used in the AVO units.
