control arm bushing

  1. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I have 112K miles on my 2008 X5 (3.0si). The symptoms are tire noise, front tires are wearing on the outer edges, the passenger side front tire is cupping (uneven wear) on the outer edge, there is a vibration that can be heard to the point that the hands free phone can not be used. I...

    Hi there, I have my car in the dealer shop getting leaks fixed (filter housing & valve cover). I was just called by the shop telling me that my control arm bushings need to be replaced. They let me know that it is a safety issue and is not something I should put off. However, my car only has...

    Hello guys I am trying to find if anyone did their own DIY bushing replacement with PowerFlex bushings on their E60. My other specific question is how did you press out the bushing from your control arm? Did you use the jaw puller from Loan-A-Tool program from AutoZone? If so, what disk size...

    One last issue (for now) with 1986 BMW 325e automatic transmission. car handles like a charm, but when I get up to about 65-70 mph, a vibration develops in the steering wheel. Not really bad, more irksome than anything. car does not pull to one side or the other, and runs straight for quite a...

    At 60,000 miles, I recently noticed a noise coming from my front suspension when going over sharp hills or when the suspension is loaded/compressed in a dip. It also happens when I go over speed bumps. I have narrowed it down to the passengers (right) side by going over a speed bump one side at...

    Hey everyone. So I took my car in for inspection the other day (I've got a 2009 335xi coupe with 20k miles), and I failed my inspection. The reason for the fail was because of low tread on the inner part of my front right tire (due to excessive negative camber) and the cause of the camber...

    Don't know if this has been posted before... tried searching and didn't find anything. Anyway, I wanted to share this good reading on the poly vs. rubber debate. Basically it explains why poly may not be your best choice for FCABs if your car doesn't see the track much. It's on a...
