Hey guys,
Can anyone send me some pics of trailing arms?
I've been told that the "Trailing Arm Bushes" need replacing and I'm wondering whether it's something I can do myself?
I have a 323i SE 1996 E36-M52.

Also I'm changing the rear brakes this weekend, pads, h/brake shoes, rotors and sensor. Is there anything i should look out for?

Thanks in advance for any help


Darrell

It would be a good idea to mark the location of the three bolts before removing them. Taking a digital picture would even be better. This will allow you to return the alignment close to where it was.

I still recommend a complete alignment check after the install, but this will keep alignment issues to a minimum until you can get it to a shop.

RTAB's are a total pain in the arse to do. On the non M3 E36's, these fail sooner than they should in relation to the rest of the car.
