Hello everybody,

I need to change my front sway bar with bushings, front control arm with bushings and rear struts. my car has m6 rims and m3 body kit. I need to buy those parts that i mentioned and i am having trouble finding the right brands.

I wants something with quality but a bit cheaper! any ideas for brands?? thanks!!

You're welcome, eh

EDIT: Do yourself a favor and don't get anything made by MTC. They're awful.

i just went to the mechanic and he told me i have to change my rear struts on my 330ci... i called the store and they said that in the computers it only shows rear shocks... what now?

In the front, you have struts. In the rear you have springs and shocks.

I just went with Meyle bushings and I don't notice any degradation in handling or vibration (but they will supposedly last twice as long). My understanding is that people really like the Meyle control arm as well since you can replace the parts that wear out and don't need to buy a new control arm next time.

If I were in your position I would get Meyle bushings and control arms. But there are plenty of members here who would argue that OEM is better (and they have good reasons). Also many members argue that powerflex urethane bushings are the way to go... they have their reasons too. Do some searching if you're interested, there is much discussion on the subject.
