Front Control Arm & Bushing Package, TrackCAB - 1996-1999 E36 M3
German-made control arms and Delrin bushings are the recommended track setup.
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 non-M E36 Meyle HD control arms with our Delrin TrackCAB bushings. This package is as close to the original alignment specs for the 96-99 M3 as possible and delivers outstanding precision on the track. Recommended for track use only.
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 offset Delrin bushings in our ultra-low profile housings. Delrin is stiffer than urethane and nearly solid. This prevents deflection in the suspension and steering for much more precision and faster reactions in the chassis. OEM rubber or Powerflex polyurethane bushings are optional (see other kits).
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.
