E9X M3 Front Control Arm Upgrade for Non-M E90/E92/E93
Improve handling and steering feel with OEM M3-spec control arms.
Front OEM M3 upper and lower control arms are a direct replacement for the stock arms on your 2006-2013 E90, E92, E93 non-M 325i, 328i, 330i, and 335i (RWD models only). The M3 arms give more negative camber and have stronger bushings and ball joints. These will improve handling, reduce understeer, and improve steering feel. OEM M3 control arms are made by TRW.
As the BMW community has learned, the 1- and 3-Series pack a lot of power, especially on the turbo engines, that can easily be increased to levels greater than the M3! With that extra power, however, there is a need for serious suspension performance to match...
This control arm set replaces your stock front suspension wishbone and tension arms with OEM TRW M3 pieces for increased negative camber, increased steering feedback, and strengthened solid joints. The negative camber is increased by approximately .75 degrees for better turn-in and chassis balance. These M3 upgrade arms can be used with the stock, non-M suspension on both E9X and E8X cars. Kit includes left and right upper tension arms, lower wishbone arms, and includes the M3 headlight leveling arm (you only need the bottom stud from it).
One of the key advantages of the M3 arms is in the bushings. The tension arm bushings are not filled with fluid like the non-M stock bushings (which tends to leak out). The solid rubber design make them stiffer and last longer. The wishbone has a sealed inner spherical bearing that provides much more precision.
For cars with xenon or adaptive headlights the original non-M headlight leveling arm cannot be re-used. We include the M3 arm in this package. Remove the lower ball joint/stud from both arms and use the M3 stud on the non-M arm. Secure with the included M6 nut.
These arms are made by TRW - the original supplier to BMW for the stock M3 arms.
