Front Control Arm & Bushing Package, Powerflex Polyurethane - 1996-1999 E36 M3
German-made control arms and urethane bushings deliver sporty ride and handling.
Original 96-99 E36 M3 control can be expensive and are sometimes difficult to source from BMW in Germany. To get around these obstacles, we have put together this package of left and right non-M E36 Meyle HD control arms with a pair of offset PowerFlex polyurethane control arm bushings. This package is as close to the original alignment specs for the 96-99 M3 as possible and delivers excellent precision on the street or occasional track day.
1996-1999 E36 M3 used a different control arm, bushing, and spindle than other E30 and E36. That's why mixing and matching of components can give varying results. Our package with E36 control arms and offset bushings is as close as possible to the original caster alignment and wheel position in the fender. The control arms are made in Europe and use an all-metal ball joint instead of rubber or plastic-isolated. This arm/bushing package can be used in applications where Original BMW part numbers 31122228461 and 31122228462 were factory-installed.
This package includes offset polyurethane bushings that are slightly stiffer than the solid rubber original bushings. This reduces deflection in the steering and alignment, providing more feedback and faster response. Powerflex also has a lifetime warranty. OEM rubber or our TrackCAB E36 bushings are optional (see other kits).
Club Racing note: ask for clarification before using these in any club racing class as non-original control arms and bushings may not meet the letter of the rules.
