________________________________________
Pair of new Z4M front control arm bushings (FCABs) already pressed in to good used lollipops. These are the 66mm dia bushings and lollipops for the Z4M (part #31107836862) but folks also use these as an upgrade mod for non-M e46 models. They do this because of the firmer rubber bushing design (less voids, not fluid filled) and also because the offset bushing provides additional steering caster angle versus the centered stock units for e46 models. See here for an explanation:



These are ready to slip on to your control arms and bolt on to tighten up your front end handling. No messing around with DIY swearing at improvised bushing pressing or borrowing your friend's car and asking a machine shop to press out/in the bushings while your car is jacked up.

Selling for $109 shipped. Once complete, you send back your old lollipops to me (in good shape). Just for reference, that's a good bit cheaper than the $160 that online retailers charge for pre-pressed Z4M bushings.

If you check these links, I have been doing this popular service on the BMW forums for several years and have 100% feedback.

I put guys into these on a regular basis when I consult on DD & Track suspension builds.

Question: Will you index them for lowered suspensions when asked ?

If by "indexing", you mean rotating the bushing a certain number of degrees off center, I could do that given a few weeks leadtime and prepayment with a few more bucks.

That's what I mean & that's good that you can do that, but why would that require a "few more bucks" from the $109 shipped price ?

Certainly there's no difference in your overall effort or time to press in an insert that's rotated a few degrees from normal.

I wouldn't want to just wing it, so I imagine it would take some measuring and marking with a protractor to get it right.

Btw, your PM is full.

Thanks

I wish I had not purchased new Meyle's , I cannot return them and was unaware this was an upgrade. Free bump for good information!

So these just bolt on like the standard ones with no issues?
I've got a 2004 ZHP sedan lowered on kw v1s and some uuc sway bars front and back. Will I need to adjust anything or just take it for an alignment afterwards?

The caster angle will change but no, you shouldn't need to get an alignment.
