BMW Control Arm (E46) - Meyle HD 31122343353

A common source of suspension play and sounds, features a 4 year manufactures warranty and serviceable ball joints

The front lower control arm of your BMW must endure lateral and horizontal forces. The ball joints are constantly moving to articulate the dips and bumps in the road. With high mileage and age the ball joints can begin to fail which will cause your BMW's suspension to develop play. We have also seen higher mileage ball joint rubber boots disintegrate allowing for water and debris to get inside the joint which helps contribute to premature wear and failure.

This Meyle HD variant allows you the liberty to replace the ball joints as opposed to having to replace the entire control arm. The Meyle ball joints are completely steel making them stiffer and more durable in the long run.

Note: If you need to replace the ball joints in this control arm please view the following:

02 E46 325ci Conv'

Wonderful replacement and upgrade! Dont waste your money on the stock brand. I had a tough time making the decision to buy these. I didnt know which route to take and my pockets were on the light side. I searched through the forums and many reccomended these...still wasnt sure. So I searched youtube to see what people were doing....couldnt believe it... I came across FCPs video of advertisement for the exact same control arms. It explained how heavy duty the joints were and it shows!!! Easy install and great ride and handling. Dont forget to buy the matching bushings if your questioning those as well. Save your time and buy it right the first time. If your having trouble deciding...watch that video! Definite reccomend!!!

Worthwhile Replacement

Had some play in my E46 stock control arms so I did both sides with this upgrade. Definite improvement on the OEM design.
