Front Control Arm Overhaul Kit, Meyle HD - E53 X5 3.0/4.4/4.6is/4.8is
Meyle HD thrust arms and wishbones with solid rubber bushings for better performance and longer life
Front E53 X5 control arm overhaul kit consisting of:
Left and Right Tension Strut (Upper Control Arms) with HD solid rubber bushings
Left and Right Wishbones (Lower Control Arms) with HD ball joints
Left and Right Sway Bar Links with HD ball joints
This is the set of front upper and lower control arms and sway bar links for E53 X5 models using improved Meyle HD materials and design. 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. 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 X5 control arm bushings at the first sign of wear.
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.
