Question about 1995 BMW 5 Series
Just bought this car with front end problem. when I drive it on a bumpy road, the front end feels,and sounds loose. I jacked upthe front wheels ,and tried to move the wheels up, and down, and also right and left using my hands,I did not feel any play, and the lower,and upper control arms seem to be in OK. shape.What els could it be??
Anybody out there?? please help.
Very common BMW problem. The front lateral arms that support the front to rear motion of the wheel. BMW calls it the upper, lower support arm. Two arms connect there. one left to right (think typical lower control arm, and this arm) It has a ball joint that connects to the lower most part of the strut and extends rearward to the rear crossmember and has a large bushing pressed into the arm. You can replace just the bushing if the ball joint end is ok. Bushings are about $45 each and you will need a press.
