Front Control Arm Bushings (FCAB), Meyle HD - G12 740i/750i
HD upper control arm bushings improves steering and handling precision. Replacement for BMW part #31106861151.
These Meyle HD upper control arm bushings are listed for G12 740i/750i models (not xDrive). The Meyle HD bushing is a stiffer rubber compound than the original bushing. This helps improve steering feel and feedback but without hurting ride quality. The stiffer bushing allows less deflection of the control arm, which makes the steering feel more precise.
The upper control arm, also known as the tension strut or thrust arm, is the forward arm in the front suspension. 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 car. Note: an outer ball joint should also be checked for wear. The ball joint is only sold with a new control arm.
This thrust arm bushing is a Heavy-Duty design from Meyle. 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.
