Those ball joints are nice. Allen key on top so if it starts spinning you can stop it. I wish the OEM ones had that.

Is this possible to do on the E30 M3 aluminum front control arms !?!!?!??! I have a set of those E30 M3 aluminum control arms and they are dirty expensive. And would rather find a solution that keeps another set of these from being tossed in the dumpster. What a stupid design.

The e30 M3 aluminum arms will fit all e30's and all RWD e36's. They need to be replaced often though because the aluminum fatuiges. All e46's have aluminum control arms and it seems the ball joints last about as long as you should go before swapping the aluminum arm out.

E30 M3 aluminum arms I have I believe are fine. Somehow the boots got torn by the previous owner though. Torn boots could mean junk in the joint and if a joint fails, it's an ugly mess that your car becomes. Just wondering if anyone has done the swap on a set of aluminum control arms ?????
