    I purchased a 2002 325xi about 3 weeks ago. Seemed to be in good shape but definitely has its issues also. I am currently working through all of them but I am not sure how to deal with this problem. Symptoms, • Very very slight vibration when driving over 50kmh. • clunking when going over...

    I am currently trying to sort out all of my drivetrain vibrations in my project 325iT. I am looking for suggestions on where to start in terms of what to replace and what to look out for. My first issue is some substantial vibration with the car in gear, it vibrates significantly and even...

    Hello, I am replacing my driveline bushing, which includes the Guibo, CSB, and trans. Will do the engine later along with a rear suspension refresh with subframe reinforcements. I want an OEM to feel in the car with a slight performance increase in the suspension (don't we all). Which brand...

    Looking at an 01 330i which was affected by the airbag recall, however the airbag light is still on. Seller says it might be a bad censor however it's suspicious that it was recalled but the light is still on. Also requires some force to get into second or third gear which seller also says is...

    Hello! :hi: I recently installed new polyurethane bushings on my car and uncovered a different problem! :blah: Front shocks are completely shot. I will eventually be needing rear shocks but they are not as bad. Mechanic said that front shocks/struts are 1st priority. I received an estimate...

    This is going to be a quick review of Condor Speed Shop's UHMW offset front control arm bushing. Thought I'd do a write up since I haven't found one yet. Unfortunately I don't have many pictures of what I did so you'll just have to bear with me. The bushing consists of a UHMW polyethylene...

    Hey guys, I'm back with another thread. I thought I could figure out my issue without the threads, but my suspect failed part (CSB) doesn’t match others symptoms. I can’t find any threads that describe some of the symptoms I have. I’m sure if I knew the failing part I could find answers easier...

    Ok I know 9/10 of you are wondering why there is yet another post on a rear end clunk. Well I have actually read many many threads on this and I'm still out of ideas. BACKGROUND: 2001 BMW 330Ci There IS a diff cluck and I do need to change those bushings. However, this can easily be...

    I apologize in advance if someone has already posed this same question, but i was unable to find the answer. I have a 2002 325ci that just ticked over to 130,000 mi, with the sport suspension. It behaves normally on flat surfaces, but when I hit a curb cut in a weird, drive on a rough...

    So I have replaced my control arm bushings to stop the tramlining issues. However it still is all over the place. And makes a loud clunk/thud when spiking the brakes and messes with steering input or when hitting bumps. Is there a easy way to check the other small bushings on the control arms...

    Does anyone know where I can get rear backing plates for both the driver and the passenger side for a 2001 bmw 330 xi?

    I have play in my Control Arm Bushings and the steering wheel has slight vibration at high speeds. Could this be causing the slight vibration. Just changed front rotors, both control arms and drive axle.

    I have a 2001 325cic with 55,000 miles. I have some steering wheel shimmy that has come on recently. Car steers straight and rides good, new tires and alignment 1 year ago. No noises or pulls. Noticed that there is play in the LCA bushing. My question is should I replace just the bushings or...

    ECS has a kit with (Meyle) Control Arms and Brackets for $374.95 and a "Genuine" BMW kit for $608.95; Bushings with brackets are only $91.27/$155.11; and just bushings are $45/$86. Since I am doing **tons** of differed maintenance both mechanical and cosmetic, how do I know if my control...

    I am "rejuvenating" my suspension and was wondering how can I tell (diagnose) if my springs needs replacing? Do they those their "springy-ness"? I am on a budget and rather not spend money I don't have on something that is still good. My 1st DIY was (last weekend's) rear lower control arm...

    I noticed when I have low pressure in my tires like almost flat the steering feels tight. When I inflate the tires to around 32 or 34 the steering feels loose. Anyone familiar with what the cause could be?

    Im pretty sure the bushings need to be replaced because i hear the clunk noise when shifting at low speeds. I know usually with this the subframe causes cracks, but i dont hear any of the noises associated with a crack. could it be i only need the bushings and not welding, or does bad bushings...

    After torching my subframe bushings out and bringing it to shop to have them pressed in the mechanic told me they only go one way and i should have marked them! Its not the shops fault so please no pointing fingers I would just like to see a picture of somebodys subframe out of car to see how...

    My original bushings went bad (~80K miles), so I replaced them with Meyle HD control arms + bushings. Soon after the Meyle were installed, the front suspension started to develop a metal clunking noise that can be heard and felt (through the floor board) on both sides. It also can be heard...
