My lemforder cabs failed after 14 mo. Because I live in Wisc, and drive on bad roads, and have a lowered car, should I just expect to replace that part yearly? Obviously, BMW didn't take into account that someone MIGHT change their suspension geometry, so they MUST be all-knowing. So yeah, I should just keep putting on lemforder rubber every year instead of looking for another solution. But hey, what do I know. I make a lot of sense, but it might go unrecognized.

But seriously, from what I have read, you want to look at two variables: geometry and road conditions. If you are at stock height and your roads are smooth, go with OEM. If you are lowered and rough roads, consider poly.
