BMW Tension Strut (E39 540i M5) - Meyle HD 31121092610

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.

Fantastic arms. Bushing is designed to last longer than the original.

Mr

These Meyle heavy duty arms have made a huge difference to he handling on my car. I replaced some of the budget arms with these, and the quality of the bushings is lcearly much higher. Only 1 very small complaint, they do transmit a noticeable amount of extra road noise and vibration, but the improvement in handling more than makes up for that.

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