Thread: "ZHP" Control arm bushings?

  1. #1

    "ZHP" Control arm bushings?

    My control arm bushings have gotten really bad now that I have driven 1000 miles on it and noticing lots of old spider webs on my brakes and under my car im thinking this car was sitting for a good while, anyways I went to the dealership to get a list of part #'s for tie rods and control arm bushings, I noticed I find that the zhp CAB prt # is 31 12 6 757 623 but at the dealer was given 31 12 6 783 376 I asked him why its different and he said the part number I provided was superseded to this number. Any one know the actual part numbers for the performance package? I'm thinking bmw just got rid of the zhp part and just use the downgraded regular stuff now.

    The bavauto.com site concurs that the 31 12 6 757 623 is the same as the 31 12 6 783 376

    All depends on road conditions.

    As far as the control arm bushings, look into the Z4M units.

    +1 on the Z4M units. Tighten up the feel just a bit more than stock. Lots of Mafia members are happily using them.

    I have the Z4M FCABs and really like them. Their part numbers are left: 31107836862, right: 31107836863.

    Although mileage and road conditions matter for the control arms, you should also consider age and the ball joint in there. I don't have any experience with them, but since they're part rubber, and rubber gets old and brittle, you might consider changing them if they're original.

    There never was a ZHP-specific control arm bushing
