But more importantly, I'm afraid that without RTAB pocket reinforcements you're looking at an imminent failure with those bushes... you need to see to that promptly. Unfortunately this means your alignment was burnt cash.

I personally have no problem with poly RTAB's, I've been running them for years but you 100%, absolutely, need welded reinforcements.

Edit: those control arms look nice, are they alu?


Thatís good info, Iíll look into getting the reinforcements. Luckily alignments only cost me about 20min if my time. I usually adjust the alignment on my ZHP a few days before a track day and set back a few days after.

Just noticed the edit, no they arenít. They weigh quite a bit more than the OE arms too. But I had them on hand so 🤷*♂️

A control arm in the hand is worth two in the shop... or something like that!

about 9.5 hours invested in the car between last night and today.

Replaced the rear wheel bearings, re greased and replaced inner and outer boots on the axles. Installed stainless brake lines. Cleaned and painted the calipers and carriers. Replaced front and rear pads and rotors, did a pressure bleed on the brakes.

Bimmerteknik - how did you get the outer half shaft CV joint apart?

This looks awesome. I have a 97 M3 on jack stands in my garage that I have replaced the entire suspension, steering and upgraded brakes. Nothing but respect for your wrenching.

I removed the inner joint, then removed the outer boot. The metal cap that is over the joint, I removed that by prying gently and evenly around the perimeter. Once I could rotate it by hand I popped it off with a large flat head and a quick tap from a hammer. At that point it disassembles like the inner. I reused the cap. Got it back on and went around tapping it back into place. It was a lengthy process but if it holds up I feel likely was worth it.

And thanks! I enjoy it.

Man, I'm so jealous of you guys with actual professional tools. That rear wheel bearing puller just makes me cry.
