BMW Tension Strut Front Left (E39 540i M5) - Meyle HD 31121092609

Includes pressed in heavy duty solid rubber bushing

The tension strut/traction strut is an important part of your BMW's front suspension. It is designed to keep the entire strut assembly under constant tension. It consists of a steel outer ball joint which faces downward in the wheel spindle and a rubber bushing which is bolted to the subframe.

The factory designed component consists of a liquid filled rubber bushing. The hydro bushing is excellent when it comes to absorbing vibrations but it is not durable in the long run. Meyle re-engineered the bushing to be a solid control arm bushing. It will flex less, last longer, and slightly improve handling. This is the best solution for a street driven car and a popular alternative to poly urethane bushings. We highly recommend this control arm bushing for lowered or modified BMW's.

Note: Some customers have reported that they feel extra vibration and harshness on rough road surfaces. This is normal due to the solid rubber bushing design.

Great

I love these Meyle HD Thrust arms. They are built to exceed the OEM requirements. These are a solid bushing and not fluid film, so less prone to failure. I would definitely recommend them.

Some of the reviewers above may have been rewarded for their positive & negative reviews. We don't hold anything back.
