What part is this?

Is the image of the attached joint that is deteriorating at 200K's is the 'Swing support' or the 'Angle joint'. I believe it is called tie rod, just want to know what P/N is on my M54 E60. Also, along with this part, what else is replaced as maintaenance? Lower and upper control arms? Anything else?

Could this be responsible for a possible 'click' I hear while turning wheel at low speed?

It's called Sway bar end-link (part number 8 in the picture below). The other end on that link attaches to sway bar. Boot on that joint is torn. Worn end links can contribute to click noise. Replace, both sides.
New Febi end-links are around $27 each on-line.
Lemforders are around $35 each.

Thanks PCY, is there something similar to this on the rear axle. I believe once I saw old rubber joint on the back, but can't remember.

Guys, does the rear axle has only one sway bar link instead of two compared to the front. I can see only one rear sway bar link P/N: 33 50 6 781 540. Can someone confirm this?

The rear has only 1 part # because both right and left are identical, where as the front right and left may be different.
