Control Arm Bushings Offset-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 special insert with a hexagonal cut-out. This 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. These E46 solid front control arm bushings have the hole off-center, giving you maximum caster for your track car.
All E46 M3 (2000-2006). Measure the size of the Hex on your control arm before ordering. Choose 21mm or 23mm in the drop down.
The following Meyle and Lemforder arms have a 21mm Hex.
