These are the offset version (we also carry the centered units. What does that having offset bushings mean? Well these offset style bushings were found in the E30 m3 and E36 m3. These offset versions offer a couple of slight features over the centered version. As with all of our in-house made products; we offer a Garagistic life-time guarantee. Price is for a pair (2 units). Enough to do 1 car.
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND INSTALLING A SET SCREW INTO YOUR LOLLIPOPS TO PREVENT ROTATION OF THE BUSHING.
SOME BENEFITS OF E30, E36, Z3 POLY OFFSET FRONT CONTROL ARM BUSHINGS:
- Wider track
- More caster
- More camber
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. Using our poly FCAB improves performance by reducing deflection. Poly also has a much greater longevity than rubber and less noise then UHMW and delrin units. Considerable improvements in steering and braking will be noticed by switching to poly. Lifetime warranty on all of our Garagistic bushings as well! You can rest easy when you're lapping people in your E30, knowing that your Garagistic bushings, from your front control arm to your rear trailing arm bushings are covered. If you would like the centered front control arm bushings (like standard e30 was from the factory) then click here. We highly recommend professional installation as these will require a press to install as well as remove your old bushings.

WHY REPLACE YOUR E30, E36, Z3 FRONT CONTROL ARM BUSHINGS?
At the age of these E30s, the front control arm bushings are often very worn and beat up. When you go over a bump the front wheel will shimmy and hop and do all kinds of weird business. Most people do not realize that these are a maintenance item and should really be done before lowering the vehicle. These poly options are the ultimate in performance while not adding much noise like delrin. Great for a street car (80a units). Price for a 1 pair of mounts (enough to do a car). To really feel like your car is on rails, these front-control arm bushings are a must.
