What size LCAB's for ZHP?

I have a ZHP and its time to replace the LCAB's. I want to go polyurethane so I don't have to replace leaky ones anymore. Does anyone know if the ZHP uses 60 or 66mm parts?

I was thinking about these; http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-330...ngs/ES1899439/

the 60mm ones were only for the earliest years of E46s. then replaced with 66mm style.
you take 66mm ones. (infact I doubt any first year E46 still has those 60mm ones,) 66mm replaced them.

Those are the correct LCABs for your ZHP.

@ECS

Can you detail the difference between these LCABs and the $100 more UUC ones?

I would highly recommend NOT getting the UUC ones. I had fitment issues with them and noises.

Thanks for the tip. I'm pretty set on the $100 LCAB's, I was just curious what the premium was for the UUC gear.

About 139 dollars.... ok serious now.

MTC mass produces components for popular vehicles using a variety over seas manufacturing plants. Their parts come with a standard 1 year warranty against defects.

UUC crafts components for the BMW market. Their parts also come with a 1 year warranty against defects.

We've received tons of postie feed back on both FCABs, I wouldn't be hesitant to run either in my personal car. And honestly if MTC made poly FCABs for the E36 M3 (one of my personal cars) I'd run them as they are a quality part at a rather budget friendly price point.

Fitment issues? We haven't had reports of fitment issues with the UUC FCABs. Noise on the other hand, many poly bushings have tendency to be rather squeaky if they are not slathered in lube, some bushings require a good bit more than others.

What size LCAB's for ZHP?

If you've ever driven in a car that has poly bushings instead of the stock rubber bushings there's a notable difference! Yes you sacrifice some comfort and they make some noise that otherwise wouldn't be there, but they completely make up for it with more rigidity and better handling. They're are a little bit harder to finagle into place bcuz they don't have the flex that rubber bushings have. It's really a personal preference. I'll take better handling and road response/feel over "comfort".

The main push to the poly bushings is longevity. They have no fluid to leak
