This video shows you how to install new rear forward upper control arms from TRQ on your 2009-2013 BMW 328i xDrive. Control arms are a crucial part of the suspension system of your vehicle. They not only carry the load of the vehicle to the wheel, but they typically also maintain its alignment. Control arms are typically large and strong, so you may be surprised it needs replacing. They contain rubber bushings for smoother rides at the cost of eventual wear. When those bushings run out, that can have a negative impact on the ride and safety of your vehicle.

Estimated installation time for a professional technician is approximately: 1 hour 30 minutes
