So my control arms are getting dangerously bad! what is a good brand?/ what other things do I need to replace in the process? Where is a good place to get them done? Is it something I can do myself? How easy would it be to do it myself?
Well, I meant wheels, not tires.dmax this is true but I put brand new tires on as well because the rubber was choppy I realized this and replaced them and the problem was still there
Not to state the obvious or to knock those shops...(too badly) BUT, if they didn't bother to check your LCABs or CAs on the first or second trouble-shooting/diagnostics of your vehicle's vibration problem(s), THEN I would seriously question/doubt their professional experience with BMWs.it has about 145,000 miles and when i get to about 60 mph to 80mph the steering wheel shakes pretty bad and if i try to turn slightly it gets worse my mechanic just said that they were getting "dangerously bad" so i used it since he test drove it to see what it was I have replaced the wheel bearings three times and replaced the tires twice to see if that fixed the problem and it was still there I went to three different shops one automotive and two tire shops and they kept telling me that the bearings must have been bad so I know thats not the case if I changed them three times then I got on these forums and found out about control arms control arm assemblies and bushings he then test drove it and told me that it was indeed the control arms I am at a loss and just want it FIXED any ideas?
"went good..."BimmersGarage- I took it to an actual shop and got them done and they said everything went good while completing the install so I dont know about the torque but I can find out
