    language. For example, front control arm, thrust arm, wishbone etc can only be upper or lower, just double check part numbers.

    suspension diagram / primer

    Does anyone happen to know of a diagram of the E39 540i6 front and rear suspension? Sort of a primer that identifies the part names? I've look on real OEM and to be honest the names of the parts don't seem to match what everyone here talks about; thust arms, control arms, etc. I just want to get a basic understanding of the elements of the E39 suspension. Thanks to anyone who can help.
