    ISO old worn out FCAB brackets

    Anyone who has replaced their FCABs and has the old ones just laying around in the garage, I'd be glad to get these out of your way. Of course I will pay shipping. This way I can preload a set of brackets with PowerFlex bushings or maybe stock ones and have them on the shelf to swap out and not have my car out of commission while replacing the bushings.

    Didn't know if this should go in the "general" forum or where.... sorry if it needs to be moved.

    I heard something about how the bushing housing becomes unusable after you remove an old bushing from it. Don't have anything material to reference though.

    no, it's totally fine to re-use. many of us have done it, as that's the only way to install poly bushings.

    Let me check the garage. I'm fairly certain I have a set.

    FYI- There's a guy on E46Fanatics and the M3 Forum that does this service. He sells them already pressed in the FCAB's and you just send him your old ones back when finished.

    is there any use for the control arms once the ball joints are toast? seems like such a shame to waste a perfectly good control arm just because one rubber component is bad...
