    definetly a great price but the parts themselves are unmarked or of "unknown" origin. The only thing about buying that kit is no one has had long term experience with wearability. It might last as long as OEM parts but may also wear in 6 months. I think this spring I am personally going to evaluate them and document how long it all wears. my tie rod boots are cracked and old but there is no play but its time to replace anyways.

    Probably Meyle or some other similar type of crap.

    Plus, if the picture is any indication of what they are -- they don't have the 750 bushings in the thrust arms.

    Best, whit

    emailed a question to seller...

    are the thrust arm bushing supplied with the stock or the 750 bushings for the E34 suspension kits?

    will post the reply when received.

    Default Terms???

    Did you read those unruly terms? They sure are a charming bunch of pricks. You'd better get a signed letter from the Pope if you want to get a refund. Do a search for E34 under the same seller and all you get is another item for some thrust arms with 750iL bushings for $99. They do specifiy the BMW part #'s on those.

    You could try emailing a past bid winner to see if he is happy with the kit!

    These kits are available from 2 different vendors on ebay. One is Groton. I have experience with these guys and are happy with their products and service. I bought thrust arms from them (the ones with 750 bushings) and after several months, I am happy with the product. Second is Audi Central. These guys are whores. One indication is that they have recently shut donw their web-site. My reccommendation would be to go with Groton and pay a few extra bucks.
