I know Lemforder is the OEM supplier but it is on the expensive side. Lemforder is about $130/each.

But autohausaz.com lists these items by TRW-Meyle for only $102 each:

Any experience with TRW-Meyle brand?
I would put trw and lem in the same rating, I have seen many lemforder parts with trw stamped in the ball joint and trw makes alot of parts for bmw.
If you get sent a meyle from them at 100.00each that is to much as we sell the meyle for 85.00 and the trw for 129.00. There are plenty of people who do like meyle but I can tell you for the last 2 years that we have been selling meyle we have had 1 tie rod come back because it would not thread on to a center link and that is it.
