Control Arm Bushings Centered-E46
The OEM rubber control arm bushings were designed for comfort in mind... they were meant to to flex and absorb energy. That’s fine on a docile streetcar but on an all-out street/race build you want your alignment to stay constant. Condor uses UHMW for this application due to its high rigidity and low coefficient of friction allowing for minimal suspension bushing deflection.
Our new E46 CABs are designed in two pieces; A UHMW bushing that presses into the stock E46 carriers, and a special insert with a hexagonal cut-out. This insert presses over the hexagonal end on all E46 control arms. You'll need to measure your control arms to verify fitment. Once installed, this sleeve will rotate with the control arm within the UHMW bushing. This solution allows for very smooth control arm movement. Our E46 solid front control arm bushings have the hole on-center, like OEM. They will not change the caster, or camber.
All E46 except the XDrive Wagon & M3 (1998-2007). Measure the size of the Hex on your control arm before ordering. Choose 21mm or 23mm in the drop down. Meyle makes a standard e46 control arm and a Heavy Duty control arm. Most HD arms have a hex that is larger in size (23mm). Most ZHP arms are 21mm.
