BMW F30 Control Arm Replacements & Upgrades

BMW F30 Control Arm Replacements & Upgrades Control arms, and their integrated ball joints, are some of the most crucial components on a BMW suspension. The control arms literally control the wheel and suspension as they go through their range of motions. They do more than just keep the alignment in a constant spec - they are a vital locating component for the suspension itself. A faulty or worn control arm or ball joint is a very dangerous and potentially life-threatening problem so make sure they are inspected and replaced at regular intervals.

Most control arms for BMWs consist of an inner and outer ball joint made of plastic, rubber, Delrin, or metal and covered in grease with a rubber boot to seal it from the outside. The ball joint rotates and spins as the control arm goes through its movements and that will wear the ball joint and make it loose. The grease inside the housing can also get used up, evaporate, or become contaminated from moisture and foreign particles. As the ball joint becomes worn it can result in excess movement within the housing. Your steering and handling will become less precise and there is usually a light clunking or clicking sound. In rare and extreme cases the ball joint can separate from the control arm completely, leading to a total loss of suspension and steering control. You should have the ball joint play checked annually and replace them every 3-4 years. Most track organizations will not allow a car if they are older than three years.

Control arms also take abuse from impacts and handling forces. Aluminum control arms will generally bend and prevent an accurate alignment. Steel control arms will crack and fracture and require close inspection annually and replacement every 3-4 years.

We sell OE BMW, OEM, and performance upgrade control arms from proven manufacturers. The control arm is so important to a BMW suspension that we insist on only top quality brands and designs and will never sell a control arm based on price alone. We also have upgrade packages with superior designs and better bushing options and we have bundled these together with valuable package savings.

F80 M3, F82 M4 Front Right Wishbone/Control Arm This is the right front lower control arm (also called a wishbone by BMW) for the F80 M3, F82 M4, and F83 M4. This can also be used as an upgrade on the F22 2-series and F3X 3/4-series. The M3/M4 control arm features a sealed inner and outer ball joints that are superior to elastometer rubber. The ball joints on the M3/M4 wishbone give a more precise feel and allow the control arm to move freely without resistance and with minimal deflection. When used on the F22/F30/F32 3/4-series they all 1 more degree of negative camber by pushing the bottom of the wheel out. And these are a little bit lighter than the stock F22/F3X control arms. This is a an ideal upgrade for track and autocross cars that need more negative front camber.

F22/F3X Front Control Arm Upgrade (F8X M3/M4 Control Arms)
F22 and F30/F32 owners looking for more front camber should look at these M3/M4 front control arms (BMW calls them wishbones, part numbers 31122284529 and 31122284530). These are longer than the stock arms for a bolt-in negative camber increase of 1.0 degree. With camber being so important to handling improvements these are a must-have upgrade. They are a direct bolt-in replacement for the stock F22/F3X wishbones.

One of the other improvements in the M3/M4 design is the inner bushing. Instead of the rubber bushing that wears prematurely and deflects under load, these use a sealed steel bearing that is much more precise than rubber or urethane. The bearing allows complete freedom of motion without deflecting or twisting in undesired directions. But it's not a fully solid bearing so there is no compromises in ride quality. There's almost zero rubber too so the M3/M4 control arms will last much longer than a rubber part.

These are a direct fit to the F22 228/M235 and F3X 320i/328i/335i/428i/435i RWD models only (not AWD). An alignment should be done after the install. If the car has factory xenon headlights you will need the M3/M4 headlight leveling rod and bracket to replace your stock bracket (you can re-use your leveling sensor on the new bracket).

 Turner Motorsport Thrust Arm Monoball Upgrade - Pre-installed Arms - F22, F23, F30, F32, F33, F36

BMW’s are known to have failure prone front thrust arm bushings.  The flexible rubber bushings, even those found in M performance models, allow significant movement of the front wheels to maximize daily driving comfort, but also allow considerable alignment change.  This results in a disconnected and numb road feel, standing between you and a confidence inspiring driving experience.  Eventually the fluid filled rubber bushings fatigue and crack due to continual deflection and ozone degradation, and eventually the damping fluid leaks out resulting in complete failure. 

For the enthusiast looking for superior performance and longevity with a crisp, confidence-inspiring driving experience, our sealed ball joint monoballs are the best solution available!  Our experience with spherical front control arm ball joints go back to those we designed and used in our IMSA E90 328i and E92 M3 racecars (GS class Champions in 2011).  We wanted to offer E31, E32, E34, E38, E39, E53, E60, E63, E64, and E83 owners similar levels of handling precision and control for the track and street. 

The bearing housing is precision CNC machined from 6061-T6 anodized aluminum and features a knurled OD to ensure a perfect press fit, and utilize a sealed OEM BMW ball joint for exceptional quality and durability, making them completely at home on both the street and track with no compromise.  We have done extensive street, autocross, and track testing to ensure the ball joint used in this bushing design excels in each setting.  The advantage of a sealed ball joint is that it eliminates all unwanted deflection while still allowing complete bind-free movement throughout suspension travel, resulting in exceptional control of wheel alignment.  What you get is superior steering precision, turn-in response, direct braking feedback, and better handling.

In short, if you're seeking the ultimate in precise, predictable handling and control, with crisp braking response and a long service life that’s equally at home on the street or track - look no further. We have you covered.


We offer these thrust arms with the monoball bushings pre-installed for your convenience. Since BMW recommends the control arms be replaced for every other bushing change, we prefer to sell these as a pre-assembled set. The bushings are also available separately if you wish to source your own control arms.

Features:

Bearing housing

  • Precision CNC machined from 6061-T6 blue anodized aluminum
  • Knurled OD to provide the perfect fit for the wide range of thrust arm bore diameters among brands.
  • CNC machined 304ss ball joint sleeve inserts, providing a precision fit between the ball joint and the subframe. 

Bearing

  • OEM BMW sealed and greased ball joint for exceptional durability and service life.

Performance

  • Nearly instantaneous, crisp steering and braking response.
  • Maintenance free, long lasting performance. 
  • Improved road feel without undesirable NVH.
