Front Tension Strut Bushings (FCAB) Lemforder - E39 525i/528i/530i, Z8 Roadster
OEM rubber bushing to restore original ride comfort and steering precision. Replacement for BMW part #31129068753
These are the OEM replacement thrust arm bushings for the 1997-2003 E39 525i, 528i, 530i and the E52 Z8 Roadster. The thrust arm, also known as the pull rod, tension strut, or upper control arm, is the forward arm in the E39 front suspension (with the ball joint pointing down). The inner bushing is often replaced when the rubber degrades over time or from rough pavement. The bushing can no longer dampen suspension movement and you end up with a steering vibration, imprecise steering feel, and sloppy handling in your E39 or Z8.
These new bushings are made by Lemforder, an original supplier to BMW for this bushing as well as many other suspension components. It comes with a two year warranty.
Sold as a pair for both E39 front thrust arms.
