Just wondering is it possible to remove a control arm without recking the bushing.

Thanks

If you're going to replace the control arm, replace the bushing! don't reuse it. It's like 30$, don't be cheap when it comes to your e30

If the bushing is OK then I'd re-use it. I've changed control arms a couple of times and kept the same bushing.

However, the bently manual says to change it every time the control arm is being replaced.. so I guess it's up to you!
