The 1999-2006 E46 3 Series and 2002-2008 E85 Z4 suffer from pre-mature wear with the factory front control arm bushings. This creates a steering wheel shudder that can be felt during normal driving and braking and also affect tire wear. This bushing is located at the back of the front control arm and is the key component for preventing excess NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) from entering the cabin.
These are the larger 66mm bushings. 66mm was a new version released by BMW to replace the smaller 60mm bushings. Sold as the pair with the brackets.
Urethane bushings are also available that offer even greater performance advantages.
This is an OEM E46 FCAB manufactured by an original supplier to BMW for this part, as well as many other bushings and mounts. As the OEM it meets all of BMW's original design, fitment, and performance requirements and is TUV approved. OEM parts are the best alternative to more expensive Original BMW parts because they are virtually identical without the inflated price tag. This part has a two year warranty.
