new AKG poly FCABs pre-pressed front control arm bushings for e46 with lollipops

Pair of new AKG "street/performance" 80A polyurethane FCABs (front control arm bushings) already pressed into used lollipops. These are the 66mm dia bushings and lollipops for non-M e46 cars. "xi" models use a different design entirely, so only rear-wheel drive non-Ms. Ready to slip on to your control arms and bolt on to tighten up your front end handling. No messing around with DIY swearing at improvised bushing pressing or going to a machine shop pressing out/in the bushings while your car is jacked up.

[B]Selling for $SOLD SOLD + you send back your old lollipops to me when complete.

I've been doing a similar swap service for the e46 m3 and it's been pretty popular...

EDIT: I HAVE STOPPED DOING THIS SERVICE FOR THE RWD NON-M E46. I STILL DO IT FOR AWD AND M3.

I don't know if you're interested or not, but I just replaced my front control arms and bushings. I'll give you the oem lollipops if you want - just cover the shipping.

Well, maybe I can help you out if I get a hold of some XI lollipops. See my post here:

My car is a DD and exclusively a street car. That said, I'm not into a squishy ride or anything - don't mind road feedback. How are these bushing compared to OE? Comfortably streetable?

I actually don't have a non-M (couple of M3s) so I can't give a good answer for you.

I will ask a couple of past customers to chime in on their experience with these units. Hopefully they can chime in for you...

Just curious. How do these compare to the AKG 85A poly's that are on their site? Are these just slightly less stiff? I'm definitely going to need a set of these soon. FCABs I have look OEM and are pretty close to shot.

Can you explain why you do the OEs for Ms and poly for non-m?

The durometer hardness increases as stiffness increases. So yes, these are slightly less stiff than an 85A but stiffer than stock.

Because OE bushing rubber is not available seperately for a non-M. Actually, I do offer AKG poly for e46M3 in addition to OE. It's just not listed in the sig.
