Control arms BMW OEM w/ bushings or without???

Post by Tom4444 »

Are these part numbers with bushings or without bushings??

I've spoken to two different parts shops and I'm getting different answers.

pn: 31121132342
pn: 31121132341

In the the description under "other names" it states " Support, Rod Without Rubber Mounting H31110"

I see your dilemma! Looks like the genuine BMW part comes without the bushing, according to FCP Euro, AutohausAZ & Bimmerworld. Yet several of the online BMW dealership parts depts mention it as BMW 31-12-1-132-342 Rod With Rubber Mounting Rig H3110D

You can get the TRW arm with bushing - just check with the vendor to be sure:

How are TRW parts? Any experience?


Also, the diagram shows that it includes the bushing with #10 pointing to both the arm and bushing. Weird.

TRW are good. Lemforder have been back-ordered for a while.

Looks like the TRW upper left might not be available.
