    So I dropped some lowering springs in the other day, and noticed my control arm bushings were looking a little rough. So im shopping for some new stuff to upgrade. My questions are: 1. Should I just swap bushings, or do the whole control arms? 2. Are the powerflex bushings as awesome in real...

    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...

    I'm trying to replace the front lower control arms in my 97' 540i E39. I noticed they needed to be changed because of the slight shift in my tires and the wear on the inside. I ordered what I was told was the exact part but when I took off the old arms they had a metal spacer right above the...

    I decided after constantly hearing from my Indy that my Front Thrust bushings (UCA) were leaking and had to be replaced, that I would finally do it. I mean, why not.:thumbup: I decided to replace my stock control arms with the ///M3 control arms made by TRW. Let me just start by saying OH...

    Hello all! I replaced both upper and lower control arms on my 1990 525i this weekend (oh joy). I am having a hell of a time torquing them down to specs where they attach to the cross member. I put the car on ramps so that it is loaded, get under the car and I managed to torque everything really...

    I live in the mountains and drive a lot of miles when I get to the bottom of the mountain. I replaced all the suspension arms about 30k miles ago and solved the infamous squeaking noise but now its back with a vengeance. This is not surprising to me but I want to nip it in the bud for a little...

  15. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    I bought this car for $2300 last september and I really enjoy it although there's a couple issues that I'll probably end up dealing with fairly soon. The transmission slips in R but still works ok. It's hesitant to go in reverse up hill, but it still pulls it off and the PO said it's been like...

    My right rear camber is off. It looks like the lower control arm was replaced but unfortunately the camber is still out by 1 degree. So either the trailing arm / carrier is bent or the upper control arm is bent I think. Which is more likely? Is it possible for the upper control arm to bend in...
