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

hustler 01-15-2010 03:12 PM

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.

Dado 540 01-15-2010 04:04 PM

How often do you have to grease them?

hustler 01-15-2010 04:28 PM

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

hustler 01-15-2010 08:48 PM

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!
