what control arms should I go with?

I have alot of shake at 50-60 mph and some noise when hitting bumps in my 91 e34. I have narrowed it down to the control arms since they are still factory and have no rubber left on them. What would u guys suggest going with for replacement?

If you don't want to fix them again in a long time go with Lemforder. 2nd place goes to Meyle with HD bushings. Anything else will need to be replaced on a frequent basis (like every year).

Check Autohaus Arizona or BMA Parts Please note that the Lemforder's don't have the bushing and you will need to buy them separately. You can also try BavAuto and as they have the HD's and their own with Urethane bushings but they are a little bit more money.
