Front end rebuild- Wow what a difference!
My daughters 1995 325 sedan had the usual front end issues. Shimmy at fwy speeds, banging over bumps etc. Rebuilt the front end last night replacing the struts (Mahle), upper strut bearings, lower control arms (Lemforder), sway bar drop links and bushings and new tie rods (Lemforder). Did a driveway toe adjust with a tape measure to get the alignment as close as possible. Drove it to work today as my daughter is vacationing in europe (a whole other story) and what a difference. I don't drive it very often but I did when she left for vacation and the front end obviously was in bad shape. I have a good line on parts and the bill was $769. Called a few indys for a quote and got from $1800 to $2200 for what I did for less than $800. Going to drop by for a real toe adjust this afternoon. Be interesting to know how close I got it with a tape measure. The front end on this car is great to work on.
