Suspension rebuild kits

Alright over the winter i'll be doing the subframe reinforcement. While everything is out i thought i would refresh everything.

I'm new to the bimmers and still learning them, dont flame

Ive searched around and have found some good kits.

This one pretty much has everything for the rear end, its not missing anything is it? Yeah its pricey but sure would be nice.


This is a front/rear kit but i don't think it has everything as turner.

If you go back a page you can see there different kits...

Heres there front end rebuild kit...

i cant remember but are there common failures with the control arm or its ball joints?

I think i might save up and get the full rear rebuild kit from turner and then the front rebuild kit from ecs.

Or if anyone knows anyother kits...anyone local??


Anyone have experience with these companies?

Is this overkill? Its a track only car, has over 300k, so I'm sure shit needs to be replaced...

My front control arm bushings are SHOT so I'm also looking at a suspension upgrade. Whatever you find let me know. Maybe this is a group buy waiting to happen.

Contacted Bimmersport Automotive in the sponsor area, they get stuff from turner but to get a good price they install. I want to do it myself, they said thats a very good option with what turner is offereing.

I guess ill be orderding the rear from turner and the front from ecs in the new year.

Hopefully customs doesnt rape me
