AKG Performance Parts for BMW
BMW Front Tension Strut Bushings, Spherical – E39 (540, M5)
These BMW E39 (540, M5) Aluminum Front Tension Strut Bushings with spherical bearings eliminate the deflection that occurs with the upper control arms – preventing geometry changes and keeping alignment consistent for excellent steering and braking feedback. The factory rubber bushings deflect, allowing the wheels to noticeably wobble / shake under load. Our aluminum front control arm bushings utilize spherical bearings to eliminate the “bumping” movement that these cars are prone to. Put an end to front-end deflection issues with our BMW E39 (540, M5) spherical front tension strut bushings.
Although our solid aluminum bushings are the hardest available and may have a longer life span than other bushings, they are also extremely harsh and unforgiving on the chassis. Cracks may occur around the attachment point(s). Any area using aluminum bushings should be reinforced and consistently checked before/after each race.
Made of solid CNC’d 6061- T6 aluminum with premium, Teflon-lined race-spec spherical bearings. The spherical bearing spacers are precision CNC’d of 6061-T6 aluminum and are designed for high-strength as well as proper fitment, while allowing for proper rotation of the bearings. Set of two.
