I need to replace the trust arms on my 525 because the ball joints covers are cracked. I have quoted prices around $135 each. Does that sound about right? Any recommendations on where to get them.<p>Thanks

The best place is Vines, they can be reached at www.vines.com. They sell them with the updated thrust arm bushing and new ball joint for $80. If you have any questions drop me a line.<p>Kyle

Just a question, why do you think you have<br>to replace the push-strut because the ball<br>joint cover it cracked? I have a 535is and<br>750iL that both have this problem, yet the<br>ball joint works great and has for 20K each<br>(both on the right side). I would NOT recommend<br>replacing it unless for sure the ball joint<br>has failed. Otherwise, rap some tape around<br>it or whatever and go with the flow, save a few<br>bucks and pass the savings on to the next owner.<p>\t<p><i>: I need to replace the trust arms on my 525 because the ball joints covers are cracked.
