try www.autohausaz.com for the outer control arm bushings. if you want to do oem shocks and springs, auto haus has those aswell. OR you can go H&R or Eibach for springs and bilsteins for the shocks/struts

most people on bf.c that have used FCP groton products have complained about the parts failing after X amount of time.

Pelican Auto parts http://www.pelicanparts.com/ is the best place I've found for BMW mechanical parts. Their prices are excellent, products are excellent, and shipping costs are low. On the numerous purchases I've made from them, they've been considerably less than other sources even with shipping and duty. They also ship 2-3 day delivery!!! They came higly recommended to me and I will do the same..!!! check them out

Well still their prices on Bosch, NGK and Mahle are tought to beat. As for the suspension for example I bought a center link for $90US shipped w/ duty and the part was like $380 + tax here. I actually just replaced again, since it had some play after 50,000km

So might go earlier but then again I drive my cars that way so I'm not surprised.
