I have a Touring, and not sure if coupes/sedans are the same, but I found that in the rear the subframe hangs a little too low and gets in the way of the adjustment wrench. But even if you don't know...

I thought the creaking sound was from the tie rods? When you say "ps" you're referring to power steering?

Yeah I did push them back in. What made me decide to do the control arms was incredibly bad rattling sounds at low speeds over slightly bumpy roads. I never really had any symptoms mentioned by...

They're Meyle HD and I bought them from OEM Bimmer parts. Yes the bushings were pre-installed on the control arm. So it sounds like the Powerflex is the way to go. So Rob43, you're saying I can just...

Yes. I did the ball joints first and then did the bushings. When I received the control arms in the mail the bushings were already mounted on the lollipop.
