DescriptionOn the 3 series 99 on, worn ball joints are problematic. The OE ball joints use a nylon insert that fails prematurely, causing shimmying and poor handling. And because the OE ball joints are an integral piece of the OE control arm, you cannot simply replace the ball joint, you have to replace the entire control arm assembly. Our reinforced aluminum control arm upgrade is not only lighter and stronger than stock, it has replaceable ball joints. Plus, our ball joints use an all-metal insert that performs better and last longer than the OE part. You win twice!

I have a 2000 BMW 323i E46 with 237,000 miles. I have replaced the control arms and I "HIGHLY RECOMMEND MEYLE PRODUCTS". The difference between the BMW replacement parts and MEYLE are night and day. The difference between the two are the ball joints Meyle is tighter, will last longer and take the stress with out hesitation.
