Should i just replace the Bushings, or would it be more worth while buying this kit and replacing it all at once... http://www.fcpgroton.com/product-exe...ategory_id/181

Hey Dave, I'm dealing with the same issue. My CABs are cracked and need to be replaced. Prior to doing so I'll check the boots on the CA to see if they are leaking grease or cracked (in which case they will be leaking grease). There is common theory that if the car has over 70, 80, 90, 100K miles the CA should be replaced as they fatigue. I plan to put the car up and inspect the whole assemble. If the boots are good I only plan to replace the CABs with these swanky purple Powerflex units from Bimmerworld. I'll let the feel of the wheel determine if I have her front end aligned. Looking forward to an afternoon under Gert (or what ever name I come up with for the car).

Seriously though, I just got here because of a problem, and I got a bit of ribbing.. But cut the guy some slack. If he still does it in a couple of months, go ahead and give him some ****.

This is a great resource and it's been invaluable to me, but only because there aren't a bunch of cliquish *******s running off the new guy. Golden rule, mang.

anybody else have this issue? I replaced mine with powerflex, and its been doing this a little bit. I was under the impression that I needed a new alignment, but my tires havent been wearing unevenly so Iv been putting it off.
