I know. Like i say I drive a 7 mile "track" every day..but still 10k.

You think if i get new springs/shocks in the front (oem) itll help the wear?

Maybe heavy duty bushing could do the trick. This seems like an odd problem though.

Purchased Sport Control Arms and Power Flex bushings from Bimmerworld.

I think the last set of arms i had installed were basic and not for sport packaged cars. Didnt know they had a different set of arms for sport package. Who knows if they will be better...but they were on sale.

$400 for two arms and PU CAB...guess i cant go wrong with that.

Ill report back when i install.
