The Lower Control Arm (track rod) on your E39 5-Series (M5, 535, 540) is a key component to the great driving characteristics of your BMW. The soft, rubber bushing naturally wears prematurely, and the ball joint can also become worn and cause poor handling and and bad tire wear, so we always recommend checking it along with the upper control arm (thrust rod) when diagnosing issues.
NOTE: For even better handling and performance, we recommend Powerflex polyurethane bushings as an upgrade.
Lemfoerder is an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) supplier for BMW parts, making this control arm a great option for those trying to maintain all-OEM parts.
