Front Right Upper Control Arm with Bushing, Lemforder - F22/F30/F32 Xi AWD
OEM passenger side tension strut / thrust arm with stock rubber bushing
This is the OEM Lemforder front right tension strut for the F22 2-series, F30 3-series, and F32 4-series Xi AWD models (not for F34 GT models). The upper control arm is also known as the tension strut or thrust arm and is the forward-most control arm on the F22/F30/F32 chassis. The arm includes the outer ball joint and inner hydrobearing bushing. The bushing is filled with a vibration-absorbing fluid that does a great job of isolating bumps and rough roads, until the fluid leaks or evaporates. Worn F22/F3X bushings will affect the ride, handling, and steering of the car and can also cause clunking noises and vibrations. A new bushing is only available with the complete tension strut arm (not sold separately). To restore steering precision and taught handling, replace the complete tension strut at the first sign of wear.
This is an OEM tension strut manufactured by Lemforder - the original supplier to BMW for this part, as well as many other bushings and control arms. 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.
This arm fits the Right / Passenger's side.
