BMW 2-Piece Control Arm Kit Front (E36) - Meyle HD E36ARMSMY

2 piece control arm kit featuring Meyle HD lower control arms

The E36 3-series has become a popular classic for many enthusiasts to restore. The E36 3-series features a front suspension consisting of lower wishbones with bushings and a strut assembly. While the front suspension may seem like a simple design it is very effective while is why so many use E36's as race cars.

The weak link of the E36 is it's control arm ball joints and control arm bushings. These components wear out over years of driving and countless of thousands miles of driving. The ball joints are known to deteriorate and have excessive amounts of play. The control arm bushings are also known to tear completely allowing the control arm to move freely. Both of these failures typically result in the following issues:

  • Clunking and popping can be heard when vehicle travels over bumps or dips in the road
  • Your steering feels disconnected from the rest of the car
  • Vehicle is slow to react to steering input
  • Vehicle wanders around and has difficulty driving in straight line
  • Vehicle cannot be aligned properly due to play in suspension components

It is good practice to replace these components if your M3 has more than 80K miles on original factory components. Mileage required for change may be less if the car is driven harder than average (autocross, track days, etc.)

I've run countless different control arms in my e36's, From the lowly 318ti up to the M3. I've never found a better bang for your buck control arm than these. I've installed around 15 pairs of these on various cars, i've abused them year after year on an autocross course and they have always held up. Make sure you get the HD versions, and not the regular kind. Also For 96-99 Cars you want to make sure you run offset Fcab bushings in order to make the geometry line up.

Great Quality As Always From Meyle.

I ordered a set of these for my 1997 BMW 328i and let me tell you, from every place I saw on the internet FCP Euro had the best prices as well as free shipping, they came with new self locking nuts and everything, was a great buy for my front suspension refresh! Thanks again!
