Control Arm Bushings Centered-E46 M3
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 E46 M3 CABs are designed in two pieces; a UHMW bushing that presses into the stock E46 M3 carriers, and a stainless-steel sleeve insert with a hexagonal cut-out. This stainless-steel sleeve insert presses onto the hexagonal end on the E46 control arms. This sleeve will rotate with the control arm within the UHMW bushing. This solution allows for a 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.
Fits the following Meyle and Lemforder arms with 21-22MM Hex.
- LEMFORDER ZHP - 31 12 2 282 121 & 31 12 2 282 122

- MEYLE HD - 31 12 6 777 851 & 31 12 6 777 852
*Please note that Meyle makes a standard e46 control arm and a Heavy Duty control arm. SOME HD arms have a hex that is larger in size. These HD control arms may need to be shaved 1-2 mm for proper fitment.
*CABs can be ordered already pressed into new carriers here.
