My Ride: 2003 BMW M3
e46 M3 Rear upper control arm issue

Can someone answer the follwoing...please need help on it.

1) is there a part difference than a non M3 and a M3 rear upper control arms.
- leaf that holds the Rear Spring.. rright rear leaf cracking where Ground control ride height adjuster sits.
2) Level of dificulty doing a swap on it.
- I need to replace the right rear Spring seat. aka upper cotrol arm, spring leaf.
3) do I need special tools?

I am hoping not to replace any bushing at the moment.

Seen guides and threads on the bushing replacement, but not on the arm.

also, is there a DIY on repairing or dismantling the right mirror on the door.
My glass is not set properly where it is loose, but not totally off.

Thanks in Advance.
