I'm at 161,000 miles on my odo. My front ride is really horrible over rough roads and they are A LOT of them in NYC so I'm reminded every minute I'm driving that I need to replace the front suspension.
I'm looking to replace the OEM struts on my car during my Control Arm/Tie Rods replacement.
BavAuto sells these three brands with Bilstein Heavy Duty being both the cheapest and most popular replacement part. The Boge/Sachs OEM cost more so I'm confused as to what to get. And nothing much is said about Monroe anywhere so I'm assuming the are going to be shitty quality. What I want
; Regular ride comfort with secure handling like you get with any new BMW that will be durable and last the rest of the car's lifespan. I DON'T WANT SPORTS or LOWERED thank you very much. What should I get here? Bilstein Heavy Duty or Sachs/Boge/OEM?
Also a mechanic says it will be $500 for the labor just for the Control arms alone. Says the BMW realignment needs some "special" computer software.
Does that sound about right?
