Front Tension Strut Hydrobearing Bushing (FCAB), Lemforder - F10 5-series, F06/F13 6-series
OEM rubber bushing to restore original ride comfort and steering precision. Replacement for BMW part #31126777653
This is the OEM Lemforder hydrobearing bushing for the front tension strut on the F10 528xi/535xi/550xi, F06 640xi/650xi GranCoupe, F12/F13 640xi/650xi, and F01/F02 750iX/750LiX xDrive models. The tension strut is also known as the thrust arm and is the forward-most control arm on the F10/F06/F12/F13/F02 chassis. The bushing is filled with a vibration-absorbing fluid that does a great job of isolating bumps and rough roads, until the fluid leaks or evaporates. Worn F10/F06/F12/F13 bushings will affect the ride, handling, and steering of the car and can also cause clunking noises and vibrations. To restore steering precision and taught handling, replace the tension strut bushing at the first sign of wear.
This is an OEM bushing (hydrobearing) for the tension strut / thrust arm, made by Lemforder, one of the original suppliers to BMW of this part and many other suspension components on your car. It comes with a two year warranty. Sold per bushing.
Powerflex urethane replacement bushings are also available (see below).
