E46 Front Control Arm Bushing Fitment - (Non-M K0106-80, M K0105-80)
Does you e46 front control arm bushing not seem to fit into the front control arm bushing (lollipop) housing? Do your bushings seem to look too large, or too small for their housing?
- FCAB bushing does not fit in the OEM housing.
The e46 chassis uses two different size front control arm bushings depending on the model of the e46. Non-M chassis, get 66mm bushings, while e46 M3's received a 60mm version of the bushing.
If the bushing is too small for the housing, this indicated that you like got the M3 version, when you actually need the Non-M version.
If the bushing is too large, and will not fit into the housing, you likely got Non-M version FCAB bushings, when you need the M version bushings.
