Lcab placement help
 
Hey guys, I'm gettn ready to install my new m3 flcabs with offset. I know your supposed to align the marks on the lollipop and tge bushing. But I got the meistersatz brand and the only marking on the bushing is two "+" side by across from the hole with "05" and "06" under each cross. Then there are three sets of three dots around the cross with the 05 under it.

The offset goes towards the transmission parallel to the ground (thats how the control arms off my m3 in the garage are)

Are you upgrading any other suspension geometry? You may have a hard time aligning it if you aren't changing the upper strut mounts.

It would depend on what year m3 he has. If its a 95 then it would be the same as what he had. I can't see what year it is on my phone. :lmao:

Oh my bad I read that wrong I thought he said he was going to install the offset lcabs on his m3 not m3 lcabs :lmao:

Apparently I can't comprehend what I'm reading on my phone either.

Thanx guys, got them installed. All I had were basic hand tools and a vice so it was a major pita! I had to pretty much destroy the old old ones but the drivers side was down to just one if the rubber connectors lol.

Next up is new sway bar links, they are just barely hanging on. Then my suspension refresh will be done! At 180k miles everything rubber wasn't looking so good.
