In Reply to: Urethane Thrust Arm Bushings? posted by t_tice on November 20, 2000 at 23:53:28:
The E32 bushings should have lasted 3 times that. Are you sure it's the bushings and nothing else ?
Torqueing them with the arms unloaded is a common mistake and that is the cause of premature wear and cracks.
Does anyone know where I can get stronger thrust arm bushings than the OEM rubber ones. I currently have the 750 bushings. They seem to have only lasted less than 30K miles.
I'm willing to put up with a more harsh ride to eliminate the shimmy under braking?
Any other ideas would be welcome as well.
