Front Control Arm & Bushing Package - 1995-1999 E36 M3
German-made control arms and OEM bushings deliver original ride, comfort, and handling.
Original 96-99 E36 M3 control can be expensive and are sometimes difficult to source from BMW in Germany. To get around these obstacles, we have put together this package of left and right E36 non-M Meyle HD control arms with a pair of OEM rubber bushings (from the 1995 M3) with offset center holes. This package is as close to the original alignment specs for the 96-99 M3 as possible and delivers excellent steering precision on the street or the occasional track day.
1996-1999 E36 M3 used a different control arm, bushing, and spindle than other E30 and E36. That's why mixing and matching of components can give varying results. Our package with E36 control arms and offset bushings is as close as possible to the original caster alignment and wheel position in the fender. The control arms are made in Europe and use an all-metal ball joint instead of rubber or plastic-isolated. This arm/bushing package can be used in applications where Original BMW part numbers 31122228461 and 31122228462 were factory-installed.
This package includes OEM offset rubber bushings. Powerflex polyurethane or our TrackCAB E36 bushings are optional (see other kits).
This package can also be used as a control arm kit for 1995 M3 where it retains all of the same geometry as the original spec.
Club Racing note: ask for clarification before using these in any club racing class as non-original control arms and bushings may not meet the letter of the rules.
