    Those Meyle's shown are just fine, and.....

    .... reports from experienced users of both these (in particular) and ones with the uprated M5 bushings installed are that the mileage longevity is about the same. I have a set of the M5's that I'll use on the next control arm change because I have them, but if that wasn't the case these are probably what I'd use. These probably hold up better than the OEM Lemforder.

    how do you know they hold up better than the lemforder control arm?
    have you tested them in a control test?

    My statement about the Meyle HD (upper)........

    .... control arms was based on the fact that they now are made similar to the M5 bushing style. AFAIK the Lemforder arms haven't changed theirs from the original design. It was an intuitive assumption and the keyword in my statement is 'probably'. Take it for what it's worth.

    Sutre, real easy: Jack up the car, remove the ball

    remove the bolt at the large bushing and chassis connection, replace the thrust arm.
    Attache and tighten the ball-joint nut to torque; finger tighten the bushing bolt. Load the suspension (set the car on the ground), tighten the bushing end bolts to torque.
    Open a cold beer.
