BMW fcab busted

I had them installed less than a year ago, brand new. Had them for about 5000 miles. Now one of them is busted and making clunking noises on bumps. I am thinking about buying power flex fcabs this time. Are they more durable? Where I live, Michigan, the road condition is horrible with lots of potholes.

Thanks

I will soon. I want to get my diff bushings and balljoints out of the way first. I'll probably need/get an alignment afterwards just in case. And if i'm going to get an alignment, i may as well replace my tierods. so i'll do tierods + z4m bushings together. pricy
