Front Tension Strut Bushing (FCAB), Lemforder - F22/F30/F32 Xi AWD
OEM rubber bushing to restore original ride comfort and steering precision. Replacement for BMW part #31126854729
This is the OEM replacement upper control arm thrust arm bushing for 2012-2020 AWD F22, F30, and F32 models. The upper control arm, also known as the pull rod, tension strut, or thrust arm, is the forward arm in the F22/F3X front suspension (with the ball joint pointing down). 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 F22/F3X Xi bushings will affect the ride, handling, and steering of the car and can also cause clunking noises and vibrations. To restore steering precision and tight handling, replace the tension strut bushing at the first sign of wear.
The inner bushing can be replaced on its own, however, removing the control arm is required so a complete replacement is our recommendation. The arm has a service life anyway.
This is an OEM tension strut bushing manufactured by Lemforder - the original supplier to BMW for this part, as well as many other bushings and mounts. As the 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. This part has a two year warranty.
