1984 E30. Old SOB! (car and owner)<G> I need to replace the rubber lolipop bushing (the non-ball-joint suspension pivot on front a-arm on these cars--a rubber doo-dad restrained by the a-arn shaft and the bracket.) I have the M3 solid bushings to put in there. I also have the complete a-arm with ball joints and steering/sway bar links as well. The car is likely a short timer...iow, if it last about 50,000 miles (roughly 5-6 years) I'll be quite happy. it has maybe 250M on it now. compression good, but the oil presure light is staying on for 5 sec or so when I crank it up. (another thread) So...give than I am not able to put the car on a lift, I'm 65+ yrs old, and all that fun stuff...would replacing the whole assembly be overall better than just the bushings (I know...I can't tell you how the ball joints are...I've not looked yet) What does a knackered ball joint look like or do? what is the best tool to press on/in the bushing from other the car (not on the bench)?
