Front Outer Ball Joint, Meyle - E60/E61 525xi/530xi/535xi xDrive
Fresh ball joint to restore ride comfort and steering precision. Replacement for BMW part #31126779840
This is the outer ball joint for the front tension struts on E60/E61 525xi/530xi/535xi xDrive models. The tension strut is also known as the thrust arm, upper control arm, or pull rod, and is the forward-most control arm on the xDrive chassis. The outer ball joint can be replaced separate from the thrust arm on these models but there is also an inner bushing to be replaced as well.
Worn ball joints 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 ball joint at the first sign of wear.
