BMW Radius Arm Parts
BMW has repeatedly put their emphasis on quality and being ahead of the opposition as a priority, which has aided in bringing the brand to one of the German big three for automakers. Their consistency has brought them a great status and is also shown in their products, even in their radius arm parts and components. Radius arm bushings in your BMW are a part of your suspension system. They are situated at the front and back of the radius arm and their purpose is to prevent the arm from too much wear and tear over time. If you hear a metal on metal knocking, this is usually a warning sign that your bushings have to be replaced. Your BMW’s suspension system should be examined every 3000 miles or every six months to stop the wear and tear that is brought on over time. The first thing to do is put in two support jacks in back of your BMW’s rear tires and use the lever to lift it up. Use a lug wrench to loosen the lug nuts on the front of the wheel. Take off the lug nuts below your BMW’s wheel hub and remove the wheel. If you have questions about BMW’s radius arm parts or components, the FCP Euro team is in place to help you out.
