This is the OEM Lemforder front left tension strut for the F10 528xi/535xi/550xi, F06 640xi/650xi GranCoupe, and F12/F13 640xi/650xi (AWD xDrive) models. The tension strut is also known as the thrust arm and is the forward-most control arm on the F10/F06/F12/F13 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 F10/F06/F12/F13 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 / thrust arm made by Lemforder, one of the original suppliers to BMW of this part and many other suspension components on your car. It comes with a two year warranty.

Powerflex urethane replacement bushings are also available (see below).
