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.
Penskeparts.com, but they all use the same
language. For example, front control arm, thrust arm, wishbone etc can only be upper or lower, just double check part numbers.
