Damn, I just bought some for the thrust links on my E39 540 on the internet and would rather have supported a local shop.

Anyway, I would also like to know prices for the rest of the bushings, as well as a ballpark installation price when you get a chance.

Hustler you do know you have to lube these bushings every now and then

Oh yeah, I have a similar product in my Jeep. Any poly bushings seems to transmit just a little more vibration, but in my Jeep allow better articulation and suspension movement over the factory solid rubber ones, and in my 540i should last a good deal longer than the stock units. I used my own grease with the Jeep ones - that was a mistake. Use copper grease, and you're golden.

In fact,

I'm going to take a big leap here,

I swear by polyurethane bushings.

How often do you have to grease them?

My current set in the Jeep mostly have grease zerks. I do those whenever I am underneath (another high maintenance vehicle). The ones without tend to go a year or so, but could probably last longer in a car with a) less suspension articulation, and b) less immersion in water and general filth.

If it helps, I have never heard them squeaking.

^so what are the drawbacks of never greasing them? accelerated wear? or is it just squeaks

I suspect they would become squeaky and wear faster, I dont know for sure because I have never left them that long.

They definitely press more easily than conventional bushings. The hardest part of greasing them is getting the bolts apart, unlike rubber bushings that are a bitch to get out sometimes.

I find that you pretty much have to grease them at least once a year. I do it in the spring, because the grease seems to be washed out by winter usage. On my anti-roll bar, I didn't grease them for a couple of years when I was on the west coast and it seemed to actually wear out the bar a bit. On a street-driven car, I would only put them on the anti-roll bars because they're readily accessible and R&R does not mess up your alignment (not a problem, however, if you've got grease fittings).

E46 and E36 Trailing arm Bushing sets IN STOCK!!

They give alot better straight line stability, and put the power down better!

Get them replaced, the OEM ones wear out quick, making rear tires wear quickly, especially on M cars.

As long as they are lubricated properly when installed, they last a long time without squeaking!

I do not have those in stock, BUT I can usually have them in about 1 week.

Powerflex does make a subframe bushing for the E34!

Thanks I didn't know you worked for rmp, maybe you can answer some more of my questions since you've got so much time on your hands. Some people don't have an opportunity to call during business hours due to work. I plan to call anyways.

I put a set in my 325is and the handling difference was like 30 times better. Steering was super responsive and crisp. I would suggest this product to anyone, especially BMW powers.

Rocco doesn't know what buisness hours are. He's usually there before 9 and is almost always there past 7. Give him a shout when you can, or leave a message and lauren will get back to you.

How is that remotely possible in this day and age? You don't have even a 5 minute break? No cell? You don't have any business lines in your building you can use?
