Front Tension Strut Bushing (FCAB), Lemforder - E9X 325xi/328xi/330xi/335xi
OEM rubber bushing to restore original ride comfort and steering precision. Replacement for BMW part #31126768818
This is the OEM Lemforder hydrobearing bushing for the front traction strut on the E9X 325xi/328xi/330xi/335xi and E84 X1 28iX/35iX. The traction strut is also known as the thrust arm or upper control arm and is the rear-most control arm on the E9X xDrive chassis.
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 E9X bushings will affect the ride, handling, and steering of the car and can also cause clunking noises and vibrations. To restore steering precision and taught handling, replace the tension strut bushing at the first sign of wear.
This is an OEM bushing (hydrobearing) for the 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. Sold per bushing.
Powerflex urethane replacement bushings are also available (see below).
