I called BMPD and they said the eccentrics are for better tire wear but reduces handeling a bit. The application is all non-eccentric for stock setup, all eccentric for less tire wear setup, or you can buy the K-Mack (spelling?) bushings that allow you to adjust the rear camber to increase camber + or - the stock setting. This sounds cool although these bushing are kind of pricy at $295 for the complete set.

Not sure which way I should go..., anyone have experience with this.

philo,

i'd appreciate you keeping me advised,..the toe-in on the rear of my 5er is out of factory spec,..and i'm trying to avoid chewing up a new set of michelin 255/40 x17s.

any advice would sure be appreciated...!!!

Where do the ecentric bushings go ? Inboard or Outboard ? Also, because they are eccentric does that mean they allow the rear toe-in to be adjustable. Lastly, how to they go in or align (position within the trailing arm).

Trailing arm bushings.
2 different numbers listed
33 32 9 058 824 (eccentric)
33 32 9 061 946

Thanks,

Philo.
