BMW 330i, 325i, e46, Lower Control Arms and Tie Rods How to Change out, Repair
How to remove and replace your steering tie rod(s) and lower control arm(s) in an e46 BMW Sport. If your BMW's front end is clunking when you hit the brakes or your car wanders on uneven pavement, it's usually your lower control arm ball joints (built into the lower control arm) or your control arm bushing. Under normal driving conditions you should replace the lower control arm bushing every 60k miles and the entire control arm and bushing as a set every 120k miles. I also replace the steering tie rods because you are already in the area and it provides better clearance to remove the lower control arms. Check your tires because if your front suspension has degraded, you probably are experiencing uneven wear in the tires. Always wear safety glasses or goggles and gloves for protection. Always get a proper alignment soon after this procedure. After hearing from other BMW owners, the part brand recommended would not be Deutche Parts, but Lemforder, Meyle, Febi, and maybe Karlyn. The Lemforder and Meyle are more OEM related and have proven to be superior steering/suspension hardware.
