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.

DIY BMW E46 XI lower control arm and bushing replacement left side
https://twitter.com/#!/bullshitkorner I've looked for videos on the BMW E46 xi series on how to change the control arm and bushing but haven't found any at all. So I made the first out of 2 videos on how to change the left and ride side. This video is about changing the left side. the easiest way would be to remove the plastic skid pans, remove the tire. there is 2 bolts holding the bushing on, remove those bolts. then remove the 2 bolts holding the inner tie rod. once that is done remove the nut on the other ball joint and use a pickle fork to split it from the strut. ONce that is done it shall fall off. use a puller to remove the bushing and hopefully you have a hydraulic press to remove the collar or purchase ones that are ready to bolt in. install the opposite way you took it off.

HOW TO: Installing VW Polyurethane Lower Control Arm Bushings without a Press
2003 VW TDI 1.9L Diesel Lower Control Arm Bushings are Hard to line-up, but with a bolt , some grease and some washers the small one is a breeze. The larger bushing requires force. I used an anvel with a screw type attached vise and an 8" block of 2x4 wood. Once again the grease was the key. For the big bushing you will need helping hands (it is a two person job).

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- In this DIY and How-To video, we'll outline the procedure for control arm and bushing replacement on an E60, E61 chassis 5-series BMW (3 series 04-10). This procedure can be followed for all 5-series models from 2004 through 2011 (exc 2010 GT), 6-series (E63, 64) 2004 through 2010 (and coupe through 2013), 7-series (E65, 66) 2001 through 2009 as well as 3-series 06-on (E90, E91, E92. E93 and F30), 5-series 11-on (F07, F10), 6-series (F12, F13), 7-series (F01, F02), Z4 (E89) and X1, X3, X5 and X6 models with minor detail differences. The applicable Bentley repair manual will detail the specific procedures and torque values for your given BMW model, to include those for the models and chassis not listed here. PARTS USED: • Upper (thrust/strut) control arm * New lock-nuts for ball-joint and bushing bolt TOOLS USED: * Steering Knuckle Spreader Tool - • 3/8" drive Torx bit socket set * 3/8" drive Allen metric bit socket set * 3/8" drive ratchet and extensions • 1/2" drive sockets, universal joint, extensions and ratchet, 16mm - 21mm • open-end wrench set, 16mm-21mm • Various flat-head and phillips screwdrivers PROCEDURE: 1) Lift and properly support the front of the vehicle, so that the front wheels are off the ground. 2) Remove the wheel/tire assembly. 3) Remove the under-chassis splash panel(s). 4) Remove the nut on the outer control arm ball joint as follows; Loosen the nut on the end of the ball joint's through-pin. Once the nut is loose, the through-pin will rotate with the nut (this is NOT a tapered pin as is common on earlier designs). Use the applicable Torx or Allen bit, inserted into the end of the through-pin, to secure the pin and remove the nut. NOTE: DO NOT use a pickle-fork (or other ball-joint separator tools) to separate the ball joint from the steering knuckle. The ball-joint through pin is not tapered and does not require any type of separator tool. 5) Loosen the nut on the through-bolt for the control arm bushing mount. 7) Remove the strut clamp through-bolt and the remaining bolt securing the swaybar endlink bracket to the steering knuckle. Move the swaybar endlink bracket aside. 8) Use the steering knuckle strut clamp spreader tool to slightly widen the strut clamp. 9) Pull the steering knuckle assembly down a few inches so that the control arm ball-joint can be pulled up and out of the steering knuckle assembly (see step 10 before attempting to pull the ball-joint out). 10) Remove the control arm bushing through-bolt. 11) Remove the control arm ball-joint from the steering knuckle. 12) Install the new control arm by inserting the ball-joint into the steering knuckle and the bushing up into the mounting bracket. Insert the bushing through-bolt. 13) Push the steering knuckle up to seat the strut fully into the clamping saddle (a hydraulic jack may be useful to push the steering knuckle assembly up). Be sure that the strut is properly seated into the clamping saddle. 14) Remove the steering knuckle spreader tool. 15) Install the swaybar endlink bracket with the bracket bolt and the steering knuckle through-bolt. Tighten the bolts to the torque specified in the Bentley repair manual. 16) Using the Torx or Allen bit and open-end wrench, tighten the ball-joint hut to the specified torque (Bentley repair manual). 17) Install the control arm bushing through-bolt nut. Do not fully tighten the nut. NOTE: The control arm must be positioned at normal ride height before tightening the control arm bushing through-bolt and nut. This can be accomplished by carefully (and with extreme caution) jacking under the control arm ball-joint until the chassis shows signs of lightening on the jack-stand or by lowering the vehicle onto ramps (so you can still work under to access the bushing bolt and nut). 12) We're sorry, but the description can not be any longer (youtube requirement).

Front Control Arm Bushing (Polyurethane) Replacement BMW 3 Series e46
The bushings I put on in the Spring are already bad. You get what you pay for lol. These new bushings were twice the price, but well worth it. My DSC lights were on too because the alignment was far out. Now the lights are out... Bonus!
