Are you looking for front or rear control arms? Your say you are going to need a good camber setup, which would imply you are looking for rear adjustable control arms, however the options that TrippinBimmer stated are front control arms.

If you are looking for rear control arms I would look into bimmerworld, SPC, Turner, or UUC. The bimmerworld and spc arms will be the cheapest options. I have UUC arms since i got a good deal from them at my local BMW dealership.

I got my Meyle HD control arms & bushings from ECS tuning for a very good price. They were the cheapest I found when shopping around.

I went with bushing TMS rear arms with my drop. Easy to use and install. I'd trust them the most to last without spending a ton for other brands. ++Meyle for the fronts if your changing that too.
