E8X/E9X Monoball Front Tension Arm Bush
Our Monoball Front Tension Arm bushings will be the last and best bushing you can put in your E8X or E9X, 1 or 3 series BMW.
Our bushings are specially designed to suit both Non-M and M3/1 control arms that are a popular upgrade for the Non-M models. Utilising a BMW OEM Lemforder (3642601) ball joint, these bushings are as much at home on a fast street car as they are a track weapon.
The benefit of upgrading the front tension arm bushing is more constant suspension geometry and thus vehicle stability as well improved response to braking inputs.
Almost all the braking force acts through this this single bushing. On non-M's this is a very soft fluid filled bush and even the M arm upgrade has a relatively pliable rubber bush. This requires the bushing to load up and flex (like a spring) before it can begin slowing the car down which can lead to inconsistent braking force.
This part consists of a 6061 aluminium housing + cap and stainless spacers to match the necessary bush width.
