Front Right Control Arm - OEM - E46 M3, Z4M - 31122229454
Original Equipment replacement right control arm for your E46 M3 or MZ4
This Right Front E46 M3/MZ4 Front Control Arm is made by Lemförder (often spelled Lemforder or Lemfoerder), which is the Original Equipment Manufacturer, supplying the original control arms to the BMW factory. Besides a Genuine control arm (which is considerably more expensive), this is the only control arm BimmerWorld recommends for the E46 M3 and MZ4. This is sometimes referred to as a front right "wishbone", and replaces BMW part number 31122229454 (31 12 2 229 454).
The BMW E46 M3 and MZ4 front suspension is a basic, durable design incorporating a lower control arm and McPherson strut assembly. The right lower control arm has pressed-in joints that can become worn, causing poor handling traits and bad tire wear. We suggest replacing the entire arm and joint assembly at one time for an easy installation and assurance of a fully new part. Also, if you have worn ball joints on one side of your BMW, there is a good chance the other arm is at the end of its service life as well. Therefore, we will typically suggest replacing the arms as pairs.
This is a front right side - which is the passenger side on left-hand-drive / US spec E46 M3 models and first generation E85/E86 Z4 M Roadster and Coupe.
