I don't know who made them in '99, but the affected vehicles have two-stage airbags. Our vintage had single-stage, which has a completely different design. Of course, that doesn't mean they won't...

Depends on your tires. You want just enough to keep them from wearing over past the outside edge of the tread.

I think the 90+30 is a typo.
I always assumed it was 90 +/-30 i.e. anywhere from 60 to 120 for the second step.
Having done it several times that has worked for me.

You talking the Front Control Arm Bushings?
They are pretty easy - all you really need is a puller to get them off the control arms.

Control arms themselves are a lot more work, doable, but not...

It was an E330 (Wife's). Gone now and good riddance.
All in all it was reliable and comfortable, but what a grandma car.

Thanks. I was also surprised that the shaft did not go all the way through the pinch bolt on steering knuckle, like the FSD's did. For a while I thought I got the wrong parts!

Hi All.

Replaced my aging FSD's for Bilstein B8 Sports on my E46 328i. I noticed that the ride height in front increased by about 1/2". No change in the rear. Is that because they are gas...

You can always sell it later if you find it impractical to keep or don't...

I'm at 250K and have been using M1 0-40 for the last 150 of it.
Doesn't burn or leak oil so I have no reason to change.

You need to go to a shop and have them read the ABS codes. That is the only way to get a reliable diagnosis. Regular OBD II reader for engine codes will not work.

I've reused hoses older than that and been just fine. Just be careful removing it so you don't damage the O-ring. Lube it with a bit of antifreeze when you reassemble.

I've always had intermittent issues going into first when stopped, worse when cold.
My trick is to go into 2nd and then 1st. Almost always goes right in.

Obviously they didn't take the car for a test drive after the tranny work.
I would think that's part of the job.
