BMW Performance Control Arm

Has anyone has experience with these? my passenger side ball joint on my lower control arm is going out and the performance ones are actually fairly cheap.

Comes with driver and passenger and the locking nuts. Can someone verify that these are the LOWER ones? Shows lower in the image but would like some verification if possible from someone.

I just installed a set of these on my '01 325Ci with Sport Suspension. They have worked out fantastic so far. I got them on sale from Tischer BMW, and they were just as much, if not a little less expensive, than the OE Loemforder ones. I am not sure if the sale on these is still going on, but they are definitely built pretty well at first glance.

Hope this was of some assistance.

You should consider the entire performance suspension retrofit kit. It's like $50 more and comes with struts/shocks, mounting hardware, performance control arms, and a new sway/bushings.

Put it on my car when I heard the balljoint popping - very happy with the results.

^ +1564 on this.

I just purchased the control arm kit, i should have got the shock strut kit too.

The arms are great, they are a bit stiffer than stock and feel awesome!! It comes with all the nuts that you need.
