Front Control Arms

Okay,

Not only am I dealing with my transmission, I need to replace the upper and lower control arms. Any suggestions on upgrades for them? While I am replacing, anything else to upgrade?

I found that link, I was warned that there are knock offs and that I should stick to Lemfelder (spelling). I am getting another second opinion about the control arms. Every shop has a different opinion.

Devin,

My control arm set up is the same as the M5 E39 set up and parts. I can't upgrade unless I choose to use polyurethane bushings which for street use is not recommded.

Another project!!!
