Excellent write up Tim, every E46er should read it! My car's steering is pretty much all over the place because of the standard worn-out bushes.

Could you tell me, is there any increase in road noise transmitted inside the car or any other "undesirable" effect like tyre rumble noise etc or banging over pot holes :bump:

One feature I like about my car is its silky smooth.

Thanks

Ian

Any other ideas on how to get the stock bushings off the control arm, other than a dremel? I mean they are on there pretty good...that appears the only/best way to go about it.
I did'nt have the puller so used a small angle grinder to GENTLY cut through the inner section, then split it, but it's kinda awkward in such a confined space.

Another downside of the Powerflex bushes is that the grease will be washed or dry out and they may squeek or begin to wear :dunno:
