MMMMMMMM, must be a "new" design for the PowerFlex Urethane Bushings for an E46 XI. Mine do not have the washers nor do the center stick out of the outer part of the bushing. In 325xittt's photo posted on 9/16, curious about how far the Lower Control Arm goes into the bushing. With the older style, you can maintain the 18.0mm plus or minus .3mm from the back edge of the "lollypop" to the chamfered end of the Lower Control Arm, not seeing any of the Lower Control Arm protruding in that photo. This "new" design may take that into account besides keeping the center of the bushing from "riding" out of the outer part of the bushing if installed incorrectly. Mine have not slipped. Was the center hole for the Lower Control Arm centered or offset 325xittt?
