Question 2002 325i suspension questions

the car has 100 thousand miles on it, i have replaced the control arm bushings and the car drove good for a few mounths, now it is drifting with the road again, and the tires are wearing on the inside. Thinking about getting new struts would this fix the problem before i take it in for allignment, can't find any play anywere, also can the struts be put on after it is alligened.

Did you get a 4 wheel lazer alignment done after you changed the control arm bushings??, if you never this is why you have the problem and your tyres are wearing on the inside.If you did have it done I would suggest you take it back as they have obviously done it incorrectly..

Well i went in and had a four wheel allignment done today everything checked out fine and they alligned the car . I think i will put new struts on though, I think they are old enough.

O the cost was 164.00 if anybody needs to know but worth it if the car is driving bad

164.00 US Dollars? Or some other currency (your profile doesn't say where you are located)? Did you get it done at the dealership?

Thanks. I need to get an alignment soon, and it helps to get an idea of how much it will cost.
