Front Control Arm Overhaul Kit, Meyle HD - E36 318i/323is/325i/328i, Z3 2.3/2.5/2.8/3.0
Meyle HD control arms with solid rubber bushings for better performance and longer life
Front E36 and Z3 control arm overhaul kit consisting of:
Left and Right Lower Control Arms with HD ball joints and bushings
Left and Right Bushings (Rear) pre-installed into new brackets
This is the set of front lower control arms and bushings for E36 318i/323is/325i/328i and Z3 models using improved Meyle HD materials and design. Although these use the non-M part number, the control arms and bushings are the same geometry as the 1995 E36 M3 (but not 1996-1999 M3). Meyle HD parts are re-engineered to be better in every aspect than the original BMW part. This includes ball joints with improved materials and larger surface area as well as solid rubber bushings that deflect less and last longer. The Meyle HD ball joints are even better than the stock M3. But because they retain a rubber material, Noise, Vibration, and Harshness does not increase over a factory rubber bushing.
The original bushings are also made of rubber but is a softer durometer that lacks precision, even when new. The softer bushings wear out sooner and more easily. Worn bushings will affect the ride, handling, and steering of the car and can also cause clunking noises and vibrations. To restore steering precision and crisp handling, replace the E36 control arm bushings at the first sign of wear.
These arms include bushings and brackets PRE-INSTALLED onto the arms, saving you time, hassle, and expense.
Meyle HD parts are designed and engineered in Germany using an OE+ approach. Meyle engineers use the original design but with several improvements in materials and design to make a bushing that lasts longer and performs better than the stock link. Meyle HD parts are true upgrades that surpass OEM parts but without compromises to noise or ride quality. Meyle HD parts have a four year warranty.
