The BMW E46 M3 front suspension is a basic, durable design incorporating a lower control arm and McPherson strut assembly. The 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 and bushings as a set.
Instead of replacing this bushing set with factory bushings every 40k miles, we suggest upgrading to the Powerflex urethane bushings for a long lasting upgrade that will increase steering response, reduce uneven tire wear, and reduce maintenance repairs. These bushings add minimal NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness), and are recommended for street dedicated cars. The 2-piece design allows the bushings to rotate for a squeak free, easily lube-able bushing with a considerably increased lifespan. The inner bushing is grooved to hold the copper based lube (supplied with kit) for numerous years and the urethane bushings have a lifetime warranty! We pre-install these bushings into new brackets for you - saving you time and money to pay someone else to do it.
This package uses control arms and bushings from an original supplier to BMW for suspension bushings as well as many other components. As an 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. These parts have a two year warranty.
