I'd like to put spherical RTABs on a non-track M3. Rest of the car bushings are OEM spec with selective bushings possibly being changed to Powerflex Purple but overall car is mostly used off track.
Any added discomfort or vices from having spherical RTAB?
Also which brand/model is...
It's time to replace the rear trailing arm bushings on my 05 M3, and I'm wondering if they're any aftermarket recommendations on rtabs. I've seen OEM ones online as well as several different aftermarket choices, so any help would be much appreciated.
Also, what should I expect an indy shop to...

Hi everyone, I'v been using these forums for ages and they're great but this is the first time i'v actually posted so hello all!
Basically, i'm very comfortable working on cars and I'v worked on several BMW's before, but when working on my own one I'v hit a brick wall with what could be wrong...
Hi, I have a 2001 325ci. Very well maintained, no rust on the bottom side. It has been sprayed with some rubbery anti-rust material and looks very well.
The car is 14 years old and needs the Trailing Arm Bushings replaced.
As of now, the rear subframe looks intact.
My question is: what are the...
These are brand new AKG RTAB limiters. I ordered them and decided to go with a solid mount/bearing.
These will fit E36 and E46 cars. They have never been opened or taken out of the package.
Today I got the MIS RTAB tool, made the install of my bushing quite a breeze, however after looking into needing an alignment, I am seeing all of this about preloading the bushings! I thought everything went smoothly but after dropping the car to the floor and there was a pop. I am guessing this...

I was doing the RTABS with my friend, when my trailing arm wouldnt drop low enough to make the clearance to press them out, I figured out that my aftermarket sway bar was too thick and hitting the axles, no big deal, I just had to remove the sway bar.
But anyways, my friend thought it would be...

As to not kick Nihilations feet out from under him i will price the same items as his asking price. Don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.
I sold the car instead of doing the repairs so the parts are sitting in the boxes taking up space. I'm in no hurry to get rid of them though..
Swift Motorworks is pleased to announce a new bundled kit featuring Lemförder M3 RTAB bushings paired with Polyurethane limiters. This winning combination is the best option for a rear end refresh in any E46. The rear trailing arm bushing, or RTAB, connects the rear trailing arm to the bracket...
I purchased RTAB Limiters from Swift Motorworks a few months ago (before they were a forum sponsor). For those who don't know what RTAB limiters do, they limit the amount of torsion placed on the RTABs. The RTABs on the e46 and many other BMWs are known to wear quickly because they have...
I'm in need of an RTAB tool ASAP. I've started the process and I've gotten to the bushing removal step. It's extremely frustrating working around the lip on the bushing and I am pressed for time. Please help. I'm staying with family in the La Mesa area and I need to be back in Tucson by...
