    Default Thrust Arm bushings

    Which 750i Thrust Arm bushings are better? I have a choice of either Boge or Sachs. I will be using Lemforder Thrust Arms.

    Default Hmmm, not sure which are better, but...

    if you're purchasing the arms and bushings seperate and plan on pressing them in, check to see if the cost is less than the Lemforders with pressed 750 bushings from BMA or Racing King (Bruno). Should be $85-$90 US. If you haven't already, it might be worthwhile to investigate. Lots of great info on thrust arm replacement floating around recently.

    Good luck,

    Dave M, new thrusty's and such.

    Default Get the BMA or Racing King units for $90.....

    It saves you a LOT of hassle having them pressed in and you CANNOT beat that price, ready to install.

    I did mine recently and am thrilled with the results.
