mpetro is an unknown quantity at this point
I think the Bentley service manual says the (95) M3 trailing arms are different than the non-M3 ones. Does anyone know for sure, and if so, how are they different?

They are probably more lightweight, the bushing sizes are the same and are better than the stock E36 bushgs.

I replaced my LCA bushings with the M3 ones and the front end of the car is much much better.

just the bushing made your car handle a lot better?
