bushings

  1. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    While I didn't see any thread in the X3 F25 series for the front tension strut bushings, I thought starting this thread would provide a platform for discussion. Today the front tension strut bushings (see part #6 in this link...
  2. General BMW Questions
    Just wondering what other people have noticed about that brand. I've noticed that compared to Lemforder, everything seems cheaper and lower quality. For example, the original sway bar links were Lemforder and had zinc plated ball joint studs. Those went bad after 10 years. The Meyle HD parts...
  3. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    So the story goes... I bought my first e30, an '87 325is in May for a good deal. It had minor front end damage and a blown motor. After working hard all summer I managed to put a new m20 motor in and after a lot of set backs this week finally got it started and even drove it down the street. I...
  4. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hey I need a new starter, any recommenders? Also, my seat keeps sliding forward, I saw a post the other day with good bushings but now I can’t find it. What are they called? Need to reupholster the seats too. Also, what pins do I need to use in order to check which wheel speed sensor isn’t...
  5. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi guys, First post only now as I usually find everything I looking for is covered in some thread somewhere. However after a couple of days searching I can't seem to find a definitive answer for my question, so I'm hoping someone can help. :) I have a 2001 330i non-sport (European) and my...
  6. Suspension and Braking
    I have available for sale a set of 4 H&R springs, PowerFlex bushings, and OEM bushings. All are new in box or ( for OEM), packaging. Everything I've seen thus far on the forum has been used, save for the retail dealers. See pics below. I think the $300 I'm asking for all is a steal. I will...

  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello all! I have a 2006 330i with 100100 miles. I recently took it to get my spark plugs changed (I know I could have done it myself) because I have never worked on my cars in the past before. While they were reseting the code in the system the mechanic found a code for the water pump. He said...
  9. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I'm looking to get my front control arms and bushings replaced. I've been reading a lot about this and am relatively confident I can tackle this on my own using my dad's friend's garage but had a few questions. First the symptoms that led to this: Noticed squealing/squeaky noise when turning...
  10. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I am about to purchase some rear springs for my car. I was wondering if it would matter weather or not I got BMW brand springs or not? I found some new after market springs for my car and their priced really good. I need to change them really soon before it starts to snow or get any colder...
  11. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi guys, I have a problem with my 2001 Z3 3.0 Roadster. It started to make creaking, popping, squeaking, sound from the front suspension. This happens when I go over a speed bump (10 kph) or when I turn right; sometimes when I'm park and I turn the steering wheel right does that but only 2 or 3...
  12. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello All, I am a new owner of a 2007 335i w/ 45k miles. I have owned the car since Feb. 2013 and just recently took the car to get an oil change to an independent. While completing the oil change the mechanic stated that the Front Control Arm Bushing on the brakes is broken and will need to...
  13. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi guys, Does any one have the original Camber and Toe numbers for a 2001 BMW Z3 3.0 Roadster? I long time ago when I bought the car I got a new set of tires and the guy in the shop just set up everything straight, so I got a weird tire wear. The tires were crap anyway (Maxxis), I just bought...

  16. Suspension and Braking
    All 3 differential bushings. Brand new and still in original packaging. OEM brands. Will accept best reasonable offer. If anyone would like pics I would be more than happy to get some.
  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello, I hear a clunking sound when driving that appears to be a common symptom of worn-out bushings. I have read many forum posts on the issue. But I think that I may have another issue going on. When I take my fist and bang the driver's side front tire, I hear a metal on metal noise. The...
  18. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Apparently they've decided to eschew nasty chemicals like poly urethane and build their seals and bushings using dried donkey sh!t. Organic but not very durable. I just replaced the torque converter on my 02 530i ($2 failed seal equals $3000 procedure). Now, with 70K miles, it judders under...

    I have an '04 330i with factory sport suspension. It currently has 115,000 miles on it. Recently when I am driving around a corner (lets say a 70 degree turn) the back end feels like my tires are tilting like they are loose, but they aren't. I have had it looked at and I was told my shocks...
  20. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Good evening everyone. Thanks in advance for your time. Preface: I have been through the Bentley manual, this forum, and numerous google searches. While there is no shortage of info pertaining to this subject, nothing I found addressed my specific problem. My 98 328 Convertible suffers from...
