The BimmerWorld View- This is the perfect solution for this failure-prone joint whether you use your BMW to get groceries or trophies. We utilize a proven BMW-fitment sealed bearing which solves this same problem in more modern cars, and keeps the NVH and durability requirements of a modern production car - best of both worlds!

In the best of times, with bushings in good condition (even typical aftermarket performance parts), there is a significant amount of deflection in your rear trailing arm under load, resulting in significant rear toe change and ultimately reduced grip and cornering performance. However, more typically, there is additional slop from worn parts and this toe change is even greater, resulting in a "floating" rear-end or, in advanced cases, loss of control. Our Trailing Arm Bearing set eliminates this slop permanently, with a fully articulating bearing which fully controls arm movement and eliminates toe migration.
The monoball spherical bearing parts have always been the best choice for performance (professional teams at the highest level use only this type of part), but a standard race bearing induces noise and harshness not welcomed on a street car. For the Street or Street/Track crowd, this BimmerWorld part utilizes an OEM spherical bearing that is both sealed and greased, which eliminates maintenance and noise concerns - your street car already uses this type of bearing in several suspension locations! And for racers, this piece is every bit as capable in as the traditional race bearing part, but has a greatly increased service interval and keeps the grime and dust out for smooth, free suspension movement. Proof that a properly designed part really can give you the best of both worlds!

I am extremely pleased with this order. The price was competitive and your expedited delivery charge was surprisingly low. I needed the part fast and you exceeded my expectations. I especially appreciate your gentleman who over the phone ensured me that the part was indeed in stock and would be shipped immediately.
I’ve never dealt with a true “race” shop like BW and I really have enjoyed the experience. I always feel like I’m getting the best advice, and suggestions for true race car set up. Your technical expertise on even the minute details of building race cars is really impressive, and some I value greatly...
I just can't express enough how impressed I am with you guys. Thanks so much for the great service from start to finish, and always done with a smile and as professional as possible. Our particular interaction has extended over many months and never have I felt that I wasn't getting first-class service...
I just wanted to say what positive experiences I've had over the past few weeks. Your BimmerWorld sales staff have gone above and beyond to help me out, between their service and taking the time to answer all my questions, I'll be buying my parts from BimmerWorld whenever possible...
