These are the V2 versions which have been redesigned to be lighter and stronger right here in the USA. These new V2 Treehouse control arm mounts are made of 7075 aluminum made with the newest technologies to ensure the highest tensile strength and the lightest weight possible. 7075 is able to match most steel alloys in terms of strength and the new anodized coating will keep them looking good.
These E30 / E36 Eyeball Arm brackets replace the control arm bushings and the OEM bushing 'lollipop' mount. These mounts come anodized red with a press-fit delrin insert center. This delrin insert is not only self lubricating, but does not wear like inferior UHMW. This setup is a step up from just upgrading to poly or delrin replacement bushings. Their biggest advantage is its design which will hold the control arm steady under all cornering loads. Because of its new geometry, there is no room for movement/play. This means this is one of the most solid setups you can achieve on your E30 without DTM style solid mounting.
The geometry of these eyeball mounts will eliminate the "shimmy" and wheel hop caused by stock bushings. These eyeball arms offer the greatest performance increases in handling and turn-in while still being 100% acceptable for street use! There will be a very slight increase in noise but is well worth the trade off in stability. If noise is a concern we also carry poly control arm bushings that get pressed into your stock lolipop mounts. They cost less then these eyeball mounts and will have less noise.
Excellent for both regular Street or full Track use. Unfortunately, not Spec-E30/E36 legal. These are very similar to the discontinued "Treehouse racing" eyeball control arm bushing mounts. As with all of Garagistic products; we offer a life-time guarantee. Price is for a pair (2 units). Enough to do 1 car.
Please note: These have the "offset" geometry found on E30 M3s and some E36 M3s. This offset found in these eyeball mounts offer a couple of slight features over the centered version,
SOME BENEFITS OF V2 OFFSET GEOMETRY
- Wider track
- More caster
- More camber
- Replaces 31129064875
- Anodized red (not powdercoated)
- 7075 Aluminum (lighter + stronger then cast steel versions out there)
- Made in the USA
- Service slots for greasing and insert replacement
These will make a massive difference in front end grip and steering response. The factory rubber bushing was designed for comfort, not performance. They allow the control arm bushing to "float" in the center. That's great to keep the noise down, but allows for TONS of play in the steering and wheel shimmy. When your bushings are old and busted the problem is even worse and dangerous.
