My Ride: Black 01 325i 5spd
How to determine if I need just bushings or an entire LCA?

Sup guys,

I have an 01 325i just about to hit 70k miles. Ive started to notice the symptoms thats come with shot lower control arm bushings such as loose steering, shaking in the steering wheel, and a loose feeling on uneven pavement.

My question is....how do I determine if I only need to purchase a new bushing set or an entire control arm assembly? The price difference is HUGE, and the install is kind of a pain. So Id like to make sure I do this right the first time.

Turner sells a bushing set for $100.00, however for OE lower control arms its nearly $400.00!!

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
