You need the the whole control arm. You should replace both at the same time ... about $200 per side. If you're cheap, you can use the regular e36 arms, but it's only a few $$ less, so I would not bother.

Try Corner73, RMP, or if you want to order from the US, BimmerWorld and Pelican Parts. Also, the tie rods are about $80 from the dealer ... I'd do them both, just to have a nice tight fresh front end.
