    BMW E46 Suspension Bushings & Mounts

    Suspension mounts are designed to absorb the energy of the shocks and springs and isolate road harshness from the chassis. But over time the original rubber mounts will crumble and fail. We have stock mounts and bushings as well as a wide selection of upgraded and heavier-duty for performance street cars. We also offer a full selection of race only bushings and mounts. Simply choose your car below. Included here you will find rear shock tower mounts, front strut mounts, subframe mounts, lower control arm bushings, rear trailing arm bushings, and more.
    You're currently viewing parts for your (E46) 3-Series 1999-2005. Reset your chassis
    For accurate results, specify your year and model below.
    This package is a complete overhaul of the rear suspension bushings in the E46 3-series. If your car is not feeling as crisp, has irregular tire wear, or has inconsistent (and unsafe) handling it's likely the rear bushings. We put together this package as a total overhaul to restore your car back to its original feel. Depending on the symptoms and diagnosis from your mechanic, it may be logical to replace all of the bushings in the rear suspension (there are 19 total). This is especially true if the subframe is being removed to repair or reinforce the rear floor (prone to failure).

    Turner Motorsport is a big believer in using rubber bushings for street cars. Urethanes, Delrin, or aluminum are generally good for reducing compliance and limiting deflection - attributes that don't really work well on roads filled with potholes, railroad crossings, cracks, and expansion joints. The rubber bushings maintain the factory ride/handling traits that won the 3-series praise all over the world. Every bushing will need maintenance or replacement at some point and rubber has proven to last the longest and need less maintenance than anything else, even urethane. And unless competitive driving is your goal, the harder materials are only a gimmick.

    Any major overhaul of the rear suspension should include new subframe mounts. The worn rubber mounts contribute to rear subframe-floor failure when the deflection in the mount is transferred to the chassis. Choose any of the other mounts and bushings you would like to replace at the same time, while the subframe is out of the car. The total package price will be displayed when you select 'show customized price'.

    Individual Item Descriptions:
    Trailing Arm Bushings and Limiters (33 32 2 228 153 and TSU9990001) - our OEM rubber replacement trailing arm bushings (RTABs) are a perfect fit and help maintain rear toe alignment. The Limiters prevent premature bushing wear.
    Rear Inner Control Arm Bushings (upper 33 32 1 092 247 and lower 33 32 6 770 824) - new stock inner rubber bushings for the upper spring arm and the lower camber arm. These do not wear out very quickly but should be replaced as a 'While you're in there...' job.
    Rear Outer Control Arm Bushings (upper and lower) (33 32 6 775 551) - outer ball joints for the upper spring arm and the lower camber arm. These are the standard ball joint design found on the M3 and are a direct replacement upgrade on the other E46 models.
    Rear Shock Mounts (JTD909) - Our very best JT Designs rear shock mounts with gaskets and hardware. If your mounts have not been replaced in the last 40,000 miles, now is the perfect time. Skip this option if you recently replaced mounts or already have an upgraded mount.
    Rear Shock Mount Reinforcements (TSU9975100) - Even if your shock mounts are new or recent, the sheetmetal of the rear shock tower can still fatigue, leaving you with a very dangerous and expensive fix. These reinforcements are extra-thick, providing crucial strength to one of the weakest points on the car. They work with nearly every shock mount.
    Differential mounts (33 17 1 093 175MY and 33 17 6 751 808MY) - Now is a great time to replace the rubber-isolated differential mounts. The diff mounts take the bulk of the twisting and binding as power is transmitted through the differential. We use a Meyle HD rubber bushing for the rear mount as it's stronger than the factory part.
    Rear subframe mounts (33 31 6 770 783, 33 31 6 770 784, and 33 31 6 770 781 x 2) - The heart of the rear suspension, the subframe (or carrier) mounts located the entire rear suspension to the car. There are four mounts in total and bolt up into the rear floor. Worn subframe mounts are one of the leading contributors to rear floor-subframe failure. As the mounts flex, so does the sheetmetal of the chassis, which will fatigue the sheetmetal and crack the spot welds. Therefore, replacement of the subframe mounts is critical and a must when doing the subframe reinforcement or repair.

    This package allows you to build your own rear bushing package to cover the parts that you want to replace. As these cars age, they require a number of suspension bushings to be replaced. Bushing replacement not only keeps the car in its top form, it also makes the car safer. Depending on the work, it may be logical to replace all of the bushings in the rear suspension (there are 19 total). This is especially true if you are pulling the subframe out to do the floor reinforcement or if you're doing a diff install.

    Rear Outer Control Arm Bushings (upper and lower) (33 32 6 775 551) - new stock outer ball joints for the upper spring arm and the lower camber arm. These are the standard ball joint design and last a very long time. Check for play with a pry bar and replace as needed.
    Rear Shock Mounts (JTD909) - Our very best JT Designs rear shock mounts with gaskets and hardware. If your mounts have not been replaced in the last 40,000 miles, now is the perfect time. Skip this option if you recently replaced mounts or already have an upgraded mount.

    Differential mounts (33 17 2 282 484 and 33 11 2 282 482) - Now is a great time to replace the front rubber-isolated mount. This is another low-wear mount but it can be changed easily, and is a low cost item. The rear mounts are in the aluminum differential cover and BMW only sells them with it.
    Rear subframe mounts (33 31 2 283 573, 33 31 2 283 574, and 33 31 2 283 419 x 2) - The heart of the rear suspension, the subframe (or carrier) mounts located the entire rear suspension to the car.

    Solid Aluminum or Delrin Bushings To Reduce Flex For Better Handling
    Building a track-only or racecar means swapping out the flexible rubber bushings and mounts for non-distorting solid pieces. The stock rubber bushings have serious drawbacks when used hard on the racetrack - they wear out quickly, and the flexible material allows extreme changes in alignment. Switching to solid bushings will eliminate the deflection and flex, keeping the suspension motions in their intended alignment and providing more feedback to the driver. On the E46, solid bushings can help prevent rear subframe failure as the sheetmetal chassis will no longer flex along with the rubber mount. Depending on the bushing's intended purpose, the material we use is either aluminum or Delrin. Delrin is a dense plastic material that has almost zero deflection and long life. It's self-lubricating so it won't ever need grease or lube. All of our bushings are designed by our in-house R&D engineers and tested on our various racing cars, with many used in professional racing series around the world.

    If you're building a car for a racing class, the parts and materials you can change to are specified in the rules. Consult your rulebook or tech steward for any clarification. As these bushings have no play or deflection in them, they are not intended for street-focused cars - they do not absorb impacts and vibration like rubber will.

    We offer bushings for the following suspension points -
    subframe mounts x 4 (aluminum)
    inner-upper control arm bushings x 2 (aluminum with bearing)
    differential mounts x 3 (aluminum)
    outer upper/lower control arm bushings x 4 (OE-spec replacements) (steel with bearing)
    trailing arm bushings (RTABs) x 2 (aluminum with bearing or Delrin)
    suggested: front control arm bushings (FCABs) (Delrin)
    suggested: rear shock mounts (RSMs) x 2 (aluminum with bearing)

    Notes
    Note 1: there is also a inner-lower camber arm bushing. We never developed a solid bushing for this point because every racing class allows adjustable camber arms to be used in this location and we offer those with solid inner bushings.
    Note 2: some racing classes require a non-bearing bushing for the rear trailing arm bushings. In cases like this, we use a Delrin bushing.
    Note 3: the outer upper bushings are already a monoball-style bearing from the factory. They are a great design and last a long time. The same bushing can be installed in the outer lower point as an upgrade.

    This item fits the following BMWs:

    This mount package contains all of the commonly replaced rubber mounts and pads for the front and rear shocks on a 1999-2005 E46 3-series (not for M3 or xi AWD). While you're installing new front struts and rear shocks these are easily installed - there's no additional labor and special tools are not required. Since these pieces are mostly rubber, they dry up and crack over time. Re-using them lead to problems with fitment or noise, and may have safety issues as well. These mounts and pads are the perfect complement to your new shocks to help restore your car's handling and performance.

    The basic E46 mount package includes:
  • Front strut mounts (also known as the guide support)
  • Front strut reinforcement plates (to prevent cracking and deforming of the front strut towers)
  • Front and rear self-locking mounting nuts
  • Rear Lifetime Warranty 'Repair Shop' shock mounts
  • Rear shock mount reinforcements (to prevent cracking of shock towers)
  • Rear shock mount gaskets
  • The spring pads, dust boots, and bump stops can be added from the menu below. Note that front bump stops and dust boots are generally not required if you're using Bilstein struts, Bilstein coil overs, H&R coil overs, or KW coil overs. Those struts come with their own front bump stops and boots and may include rear stops and boots as well.

    We offer three varieties of the rear shock mounts - OEM, Repair Shop, and HP alum-rubber. We recommend either the Repair Shop or HP mounts because the stock OEM design has a flaw that can lead to premature failure of the mounts. The Repair Shop and HP mounts use a different design that will last longer and the Repair Shop mounts also have a lifetime warranty!

    This item fits the following BMWs:
    1999-2005 E46 BMW 323i 323ci 325i 325ci 328i 328ci 330i 330ci

    If you're replacing the struts and shocks on your 325Xi or 330Xi you should also pick up this mount package. As these cars have gotten older, their rubber mounts have deteroriated. If your shocks have gone bad then chances are very good that the mounts need replacing too. The rubber bushings are designed to isolate the chassis from bumps, potholes, and poor roads and give a harsh-free ride and precise handling. But they won't last forever. These mounts and pads are the perfect complement to your new shocks to help restore your car's handling and performance.

    This mount package contains all of the commonly replaced rubber mounts and pads for the front and rear shocks on a 1999-2006 E46 325Xi and 330Xi AWD. These are easily installed - there's no additional labor, time, or effort and special tools are not required.

    The basic E46 Xi mount package includes:
  • Front strut mounts (also known as the guide support)
  • Front strut reinforcement plates (to prevent cracking and deforming of the front strut towers)
  • Front and rear self-locking mounting nuts
  • Rear Lifetime Warranty 'Repair Shop' shock mounts

    One of the secrets of the M3's acclaimed handling is its suspension bushings and mounts. That's why you absolutely cannot overlook replacing the rubber mounts when installing new struts and shocks. Since these pieces are mostly rubber, they dry up and crack over time. Re-using them lead to problems with fitment or noise, and may have safety issues as well. These mounts and pads are the perfect complement to your new shocks to help restore your car's handling and performance.

    This mount package contains all of the commonly replaced rubber mounts and pads for the front and rear shocks on a 2001-2006 E46 M3 (incl CSL model). These are the direct replacement pieces - there's no additional labor, time, or effort and special tools are not required.

    The basic E46 M3 mount package includes:
  • Front strut mounts (also known as the guide support)
  • Front upper spring plate with captive bearing
  • Front strut reinforcement plates (to prevent cracking and deforming of the front strut towers)
  • Front and rear self-locking mounting nuts
  • Rear Lifetime Warranty 'Repair Shop' shock mounts
  • Rear shock mount reinforcements (to prevent cracking of shock towers)
  • Rear shock mount gaskets

    Made in the USA A very common weak point on the 3 series BMW is the sheetmetal of the rear shock tower. The sheetmetal here is relatively thin and very susceptible to stress and fatigue. A worn out shock will bottom-out more often and this energy is transferred through the bump stop and into the metal chassis. Stiffer shocks and shock mounts also put more stress on the sheetmetal. Factor in age, mileage, and environmental conditions and it's not a surprise that we see shock tower failures often. BMW addressed this issue with reinforcements of their own but our's are thicker for additional strength. This kit mounts on top of the shock tower and can either be bolted or welded in place. Because of the shape of the rear shock tower, these do not fit cabrio/convertible cars.

    The front control arm bushings are a key piece of the suspension. They are constantly in motion and take abuse from impacts, potholes, rough roads, and general cornering/wheel motions. To give a quiet and smooth ride, the bushings are made of rubber with a metal sleeve insert. But the rubber can only withstand so much abuse before they become loose and spongy. This results in vibrations and possibly a shimmy when driving. A visual inspection will usually confirm that there is too much flex in the rubber or the rubber has cracked and torn. And if you're installing new control arms, always install new bushings to avoid duplicating labor costs.

    This is a replacement stock LEFT FRONT (Driver's side) control arm bushing with the mounting bracket.

    For all 2001 to 2005 325xi and 330xi. For convenience, we have assembled this bushing carrier bracket kit, to save you time when changing our control arm bushings. It includes two bushing carriers (one left, one right) and mounting bolts. Having a spare set means you can get your new bushings pre-installed and ready to go on the car (perhaps even as a race/track spare?) without having to remove your current brackets and take them to the shop to press out of the old bushing and press the new ones in (sorry, no returns accepted on pre-assembly labor fee, please). These bushings fit all 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2005 model BMW 325xi and 330xi.

    The performance of the front suspension depends almost entirely on this one bushing. The BMW front control arm mounts to the chassis with this bushing at the back. If the original rubber has worn it will have a major impact on the alignment, steering, and braking. This is why race teams like ours ditch the factory rubber and put something more solid in its place. These Delrin bushings use an aluminum sleeve and are nearly solid to conform to many racing series rules, including the Grand Am Cup series that we won back-to-back championships in. The car will be more responsive due to less deflection and will last longer.

    These bushings require the 60mm bushing brackets from the E46 M3 or very early E46 models.

    These front control arm bushings are the same design as the original pieces but are 20% stiffer in resistance to give sharper steering and better response. These are the larger 66mm bushings with the housings as used on the E46 325i, 330i, and Z4 and an upgrade for the E46 323i and 328i.

    If you have felt that the original bushings were too soft or the car lacked response then these HD bushings will be a great upgrade for you. The stiffer rubber allows less deflection, making the suspension react faster. You will immediately notice that the car feels more direct and 'connected' and the steering keeps up with you especially during hard cornering. For maximum effect, we also recommend the Meyle HD or BMW 'Sport' control arms as an additional upgrade. Meyle HD parts have a 4-year warranty.

    These bushings come pre-pressed into their aluminum brackets. No need to press out old and press in new bushings! Just a simple swap! Price is for the pair.

    The front control arm bushings are a key piece of the suspension. They are constantly in motion and take abuse from impacts, potholes, rough roads, and general cornering/wheel motions. To give a quiet and smooth ride, the bushings are made of compliant rubber. But the rubber can only withstand so much abuse before they become loose and spongy. This results in vibrations and possibly a shimmy when driving. A visual inspection will usually confirm that there is too much flex in the rubber or the rubber has cracked and torn. And if you're installing new control arms, always install new bushings to avoid duplicating labor costs.

    Factory bushings are more than adequate for street driving on the E46 M3. However, once the miles start to pile up, the bushings are meant to be replaced. Common side effects of worn factory FCABs include, but are not limited to the following:
  • Steering wheel shutter when brakes are applied
  • Wheel (and steering wheel) shimmy
  • Mysterious and irregular tire wear
  • "Overboosted" steering feel (very light steering)

  • Replacing with new factory bushings will return the factory feel. These urethane core bushings, however, offer something MORE. These bushings are designed to deliver performance that surpasses the stock E46 M3 bushing, while still allowing them to be used in everyday driving scenarios on public roads.

    With the numerous delrin/urethane/hybrid replacement bushings in the market, we wanted to offer bushings that were not only effective, but simple. No clips, no washers, no multiple sleeves, and no "race parts in street cars". They have an aluminum outer sleeve with a replaceable, compliant urethane core that is serviceable and rebuildable. These urethane inserts prevent unwanted control arm deflection, while allowing noise/vibration/harshness (NVH) isolation -- a must on any bushing being used on a street driven car. And because of their compliance they remain very comfortable for daily use. But because they are a heavier-duty design than stock, these eliminate steering shimmy and wander, especially with the addition of big brake upgrades. They maintain BMW's original suspension geometry, and give your M3 a directly "connected" feeling with the front end of the vehicle. Perhaps best of all, these bushings are easy to install and are designed for longevity. Professional installation on suspension components is always recommended.

    These are stock replacement control arm bushings for all 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005 325xi & 330xi, the all-wheel-drive model E46 chassis 3 series. These are a common failure item on all 325xi and 330xi, and a new set will reduce many front end alignment and steering feel issues. This is a pair (2 bushings)

    For convenience, we carry spare bushing carrier brackets (part# TSU4695PBX, see illustation above) and can pre-install your bushings into the carriers, if you choose. This will save you from needing a hydraulic press and will allow you (or your mechanic) to perform the install much quicker. This is especially useful if you want to have a set of race or track spares, ready to go. If you'd like to purchase the carriers, be sure to select that option with the drop-down menu below (sorry, no returns accepted on pre-assembly labor fee, please).

    If you are removing or changing the front struts or springs or replacing the upper strut mount, NOW is the perfect time to replace this upper spring perch. BMW calls it a "upper spring pocket with axial cage bearing". It's really the upper spring plate with the bearings sandwiched between two plastic collars. The bearing insert is a common wear item becoming noisier, and gritty, or will just fail completely. You won't feel that they're bad from driving the car but you may hear clunking or popping sounds from the front struts. You can replace the rubber mounts on the car but don't leave this part out! It may be just as worn and you won't want to put them back in the car. These are sold individually, so be sure to get two for your car.

    Made in the USATMS rear subframe bearings are designed to limit rear control arm movement relative to the subframe. The stock BMW subframe bushings are made out of rubber, which allows variance in suspension position due to deformation and compression. A race car needs to have all suspension points remain in place for proper setup. By using high grade aircraft aluminum alloy and high performance race bearings, the TMS bushing replacements are both lightweight and strong. The casing is designed so that if maximum motion occurs, the load will be evenly distributed throughout the casing. Our flanges are designed to spread the load on the subframe and limit movement. The bearing we use is an extra wide race bearing to distribute the load over a broader area. Each piece is anodized or nickel plated to withstand corrosion. These bushings are a perfect compliment to the TMS lower camber arms.

    These rubber bushings from Meyle are a direct replacement for the stock differential bushings in the E46 3-series, E83 X3 SAV, and Z4 Roadster. If your original bushings are worn (likely around 100,000 miles) these are a great replacement upgrade. The front bushings are the stock OEM type rubber bushings. The rear bushing is a Meyle HD upgrade over stock - about 15% stiffer than the originals. This means the bushing will not flex and twist as much. This puts more power to the wheels since power is no longer used up for 'torquing' the bushing. These are not race bushings; the rubber material is perfectly suitable for street use.

    The non-M E46/E83/Z4 models use three differential mounts - two front bushings in the subframe and one rear mount in the diff cover. This set of Meyle bushings covers all three. You can opt to include new mounting hardware in the Options list below.

    Part #: E46-MY-DIFF
    Price: $75.85 (USD) 
    Made in the USAFor our Grand-Am Cup E46 M3s we wanted a fully solid differential mount setup. The advantages of a fully-solid aluminum set is that they last forever, quickens response in the suspension, and frees up horsepower to the wheels. These fully solid aluminum diff mounts are CNC machined and lightened for a direct replacement of the original rubber pieces.

    By substituting aluminum for rubber we can take out all of the deflection and 'wind up' inherent to the original rubber pieces. The high deflection rate of the stock rubber means the suspension reacts slower as the bushing is compressed. The power used to compress that bushing is instead passed straight to the axles and wheels. And since there is no time lost to deflection, response is greatly improved. These diff mounts are only recommended for racecars since the aluminum transfers more noise and vibration.

    This is a 3-piece set with a single front bushing and two rear bushings to press into the cover. They mount with the stock BMW hardware.

    This item fits the following BMWs:

    Made in the USAWhen you're building a track-only car you want the hardest bushing material allowed under your class rules (or no rules at all). These aluminum differential mounts are as solid as you can get and will eliminate any deflection as the differential transmits torque and moves with the suspension.

    Our Delrin/Aluminum kit meets the requirements for certain racing series. But these full aluminum diff bushings go one step further to give you the best response, longest life, and most feedback of any other material. These diff mounts are only recommended for racecars since the aluminum transfers more noise and vibration.

    This is a 3-piece set with the two front bushings and one rear bushing. They install with the stock BMW hardware.

    Made in the USAThese Turner Motorsport solid differential mounts were designed for our championship-winning Grand-Am E46 330s and they are legal in most racing classes where a fully solid aluminum mount is not allowed. To prevent bushing deflection, these E46 diff bushings use Delrin with an aluminum insert. This keeps the differential locked in place which improves handling, feedback, and transfers more power to the wheels. They also last much longer than any rubber mount. If you're tracking your E46 323, 325, 328, or 330 these diff mounts are an absolute must. They can also be used on street cars if slightly higher levels of noise and vibration can be accepted.

    This ball joint is used for the upper rear trailing arm bushing on ALL E36, E46, E83 X3, and E85 Z4 cars. BMW also used it as the lower bushing on most M cars. It makes a great upgrade on all non-M cars where BMW used a rubber bushing at the lower position.

    This sealed ball joint is one of the best things about the rear suspension - it functions extremely well and lasts a long time. And it can be used as a replacement for the existing bushing without any further modification. The non-M cars used a solid rubber bushing for the lower arm (camber arm, wishbone) which does not last very long and relies on bushing deflection (twist) during suspension motions. The ball joint inside the upgraded design is much more effective during this suspension movements as it does not bind or deflect. And because it's sealed with rubber it will last a long time and remain quiet and maintenance free. Most customers report that after installing or "upgrading" to these bushings the rear end of their car felt much more stable.

    Price is per bushing. Left/Right and Upper/Lower are the same part.

    This is a BMW OEM shock mount, originally used on the E30 convertible models. Why E30? Because we have tried them all and the E30 cabrio mounts seem to hold up the best. However, all OEM rubber shock mounts will fail - it's just a matter of time. They'll even fail with a stock suspension but even quicker with modified suspensions. These E30 mounts are a little better than the originals. For even greater strength upgrade to the 'Repair Shop' or the aluminum mounts. Priced per pair.

    These are the factory standard rear shock mounts used on E36 cars. They can also be used on all other E30, E46, Z3, and Z4 models, including M cars. These mounts are a low-cost replacement mount with the same original design as the stock mounts for your car. As a replacement mount they function the exact same as the originals. The original design has proven to be problematic in the past, especially on lowered cars or with cars that see a lot of track use. If you're modifying the suspension for stiffness or lowering, or plan to autocross or track your car we very strongly recommend a different shock mount (such as the HP Aluminum/Rubber mounts, listed here). Otherwise, these are a direct replacement for the stock mount, from a high quality OEM supplier, at a very attractive price.

    Made in the USAWant the Ultimate design in a rear shock tower mount? You've found it. These rear shock mounts are designed for use on the track and racing. This set of mounts will help your rear shocks perform the best they can in those conditions. The advantage to using a mount with spherical bearing is that it allows the shock to freely move off axis without side loading the shock shaft like rubber or polyurethane mounts do. Side loading a shock increases stiction and wear which decreases its efficiency. Because these are mounts without an isolator (rubber or polyurethane) to dampen road noise and vibrations we do not recommend them for street cars. These were designed in-house and developed for our own track and race cars.

    These TMS bearing mounts include both 10mm and 12mm stainless steel bearing sleeves to work with a wide variety of shock shaft pins. The pin is the upper-most portion of the shock where it passes through the mount. If you need a bearing sleeve size other then 10mm or 12mm please contact us.

    BMW used three different spring pads in the E36 E46 3 series, each a different thickness, the thinnest being only 5mm. If they chose to use the thinnest pad on your car, you may end up with a ride height in the rear a little lower than you expected when lowering you car with sport springs. If this is the case, we suggest using these 15mm rear spring pads. These mount on TOP of the rear spring in the E36 and either top or bottom on the E46 or E85 Z4

    Any subframe work or reinforcement project on the rear of the E46 M3 should include a new set of subframe mounts. It's the worn rubber bushings that contribute to failed rear subframes on the E46 (but not the only reason). As the rubber gets worn, there is more flex to the mount. This flexing is then transferred to the sheetmetal in the floor where the spot welds will pop and the sheetmetal will crack. Additional force coming from stiffer suspensions and stickier tires will only increase the flexing of the mounts/chassis.

    Of course, stiffer mounts would help prevent this problem but with a stiffer bushing comes ride harshness, vibration, and additional noise. Our engineers and technicians recommend replacement with the factory rubber bushings (along with the appropriate reinforcement of the floor). The rubber bushings help isolate bumps and impacts and are quiet. They are also a perfect fitment and require no maintenance.

    This item is a set of 4 Original BMW rubber subframe mounts. Individual part numbers - 33 31 2 283 573 (left front), 33 31 2 283 574 (right front), and 33 31 2 283 419 (left and right rear, x 2).

    Made in the USAThe rear subframe is the heart of the BMW rear suspension. Not only do all of the suspension arms attach to it, the driveline runs through it via the differential and half-shafts. Therefore, a track-prepped E46 should never see any flex or deflection in any of the subframe mounts. Excessive movement here transfers to unwanted suspension motions elsewhere and is also a major contributor to failures in the rear floor sheetmetal.

    While our Delrin-Aluminum subframe mounts conform to various racing series these all-aluminum mounts are the ultimate in reducing flex and deflection. The rubber stock mounts, and the Delrin mounts to a small degree, flex and deflect as various forces are applied throughout the subframe - on and off throttle loading, cornering on flat surfaces, bumpy surfaces, weight transfer, sticky race tires, etc. Too much flex from worn rubber mounts will transfer to flex where the subframe meets the chassis/floor. This is the primary cause for the infamous rear subframe failure. These fully solid aluminum mounts have absolutely zero flex to them so they will not contribute to rear subframe issues. The Turner E46 Reinforcement Kit is still recommended.

    These solid subframe mounts were designed for racing use only, where we won several sports car championships in the Grand-Am Cup series. These subframe mounts are over-engineered to be a major improvement over the stock subframe mounts not only for performance but also in strength as well. The aluminum is CNC machined for a precise fit and minimal weight. One front bushing is slotted to allow for BMW's manufacturing tolerances. Professional and experienced installation is required.

    Made in the USAThese Rear Trailing Arm Bushings (RTABs) are designed for specific racing classes where more solid or bearing-style bushings are not allowed. Delrin is a very hard plastic material with almost zero deflection and also lasts a lot longer than using any type of rubber or urethane bushing. Since there is less wasted motion with a solid bushing, the suspension can react faster and give you more feedback. The rear alignment stays in check during hard cornering, braking, and acceleration. You will corner faster and be able to get the power down earlier at corner exit with increased confidence.

    Delrin is a near solid bushing that does not absorb or dampen vibration or impact harshness. Therefore, we only recommend these for track-spec cars or street cars and drivers with more tolerance for noise, vibration, and harshness.

    These are a direct replacement for the factory bushings. Special installation tools are required but Delrin does not need long-term care or maintenance. Price is for the pair.

    The rear trailing arm bushings (RTABs) control the toe alignment of the rear suspension. When they go bad, the rear traction suffers because the wheel's toe angle is moving excessively in and out during cornering. This can make the car feel nervous and 'tail happy' even during modest cornering speeds. As important as these bushings are, they only seem to last 40-50,000 miles on their own.

    These German-made Meyle bushings are about 20% stiffer than the originals. The harder rubber allows less compliance which gives better feedback and crisper handling. All Meyle HD parts are warranted for 4 years. It's a performance upgrade with no downside.

    Any RTAB would benefit from our Bushing Limiters. These spacer shims fit on either side of the bushing and limit excess rotation. It's this over-extending of the bushing that causes them to wear out so fast. The Limiters will prolong the life of the bushing and are an easy install when performing the bushing replacement.

    If you're experiencing a "loose" feeling when going around corners, these are the likely culprit. The rear bushings on these cars will wear out just like any other bushing. When this happens, the rear toe (the angle that the tire points in or out) will vary under load. These M3 bushings are more durable than the stock bushings and hold up better than the original bushings. These rear trailing arm bushings (often referred to as RTAB) are listed as the replacement to BMW part numbers 33322228153 and 33-32-2-228-153.

    Made in the USAOur Monoball Rear Trailing Arm Bushings are the best solution for completely elimination deflection and unwanted toe changes on the rear of the E36, E46, and Z4. While rubber and urethane bushings flex during load, the toe can change widely giving you nervous and unpredictable handling. These RTABs have a solid aluminum housing with a high-quality race bearing. These bushings were developed over years of competition use in various racing and HPDE events. There is simply no better RTAB unless your racing class rules prohibit the use of mono or spherical bearings.

    The rear trailing arm bushings take a lot of abuse from acclerating, braking and cornering. The stock rubber bushings are just not up to the task of keeping rear wheel alignment in spec for very long, especially if you have upgraded to stickier tires and a better suspension. The pliable rubber flexes and twists which slows down reaction time and leaves you with a car that feels nervous and 'tail happy'. Urethane helps to control the alignment but issues with fitment, maintenance, and longevity keep us from recommending urethane on anything but a street car. We also offer a Delrin RTAB for cars that must conform to certain racing class rules. These aluminum spherical bearings are the best at controlling rear toe alignment.

    Our aluminum RTABs are very well made - high grade aluminum alloy and steel CNC'd out of a billet by an ISO 9001 certified manufacturer, each component is either hardcoated or nickel plated. The bearing is extra wide to accept higher loads and is replacable for a nominal cost. While multiple manufacturer’s offer two piece designs, our research showed that a one piece bushing is a better design.

    Because solid bushings transmit more noise, vibration, and harshness we do not recommend their use on any street car. These are sold for race or track-prepped cars only.

    The ORIGINAL rear trailing arm bushing / RTAB shim kit -- and still the best! As Used on Project E36 M3
    Made in the USA The Turner rear trailing-arm bushing limiter kit creates a stiffer rear suspension without sacrificing ride quality. Stock trailing arm bushings are known for failure, on both the E36 and E46 BMW chassis. This kit is a perfect upgrade from stock, as it reduces bushing deflection, dramatically increases bushing life, improves handling, and all without the harshness of "race-only" bushings, and while maintaining completely silent operation -- no squeaks and no vibration, whatsoever.

    By combining these limiters with stock bushings, this is a great low cost and effective suspension performance enhancer. Each pair of blue aluminum "shims" essentially sandwich the stock rubber bushing to control their lateral movement. By limiting the amount of side-to-side play of the stock bushing, drivers will have increased driver feel thanks to the reduction of toe variation caused by the squirm of the stock rubber bushings. This also reduces duress on the bushing, giving your newly installed bushings a dramatically longer lifespan (a welcome benefit for both pure street or tracked cars). Some stock class racing series even allow this kind of modification, because the stock bushing is still being used.

    Kit includes: 4-black anodized aluminum bushing limiters, eight 5mm allen bolts and a drilling template.
