What suspension bushes?

Post by Lytesben » Mon Mar 04, 2024 10:12 pm

Evening all

Took my Z4 3.0Si in on Saturday for a 4-wheel alignment after having some front suspension replacement bits for the MOT.

The guys then came out and said that when trying to bring the nearside rear wheel in, they noticed after moving the cover plate(?) that the bushes were shot and so couldn’t do the alignment. They suggested it wouldn’t drive particularly well - they were right, drives a bit crap atm!

I had to go off and do other things and completely forgot to ask which bushes this would be. Can anyone give any idea which bushes I need to replace?

Could be rear trailing arms. Could be camber arms.
Why don’t you ask them exact what ones you need. Else it’s all guess work

The only bushes that might be described as being behind a cover plate are, as j3nks says, the RTABs. These are also what are adjusted to do rear toe.

Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?
