Master Trailing Arm Bushing Tool Set for BMW E36 / E46

This tool set allows for on-car installation AND removal of the three rear bushings located on the semi-trailing arm of E36 and E46 BMW 3-series cars:

  • Upper control arm bushing
  • Lower control arm bushing
  • Trailing arm bushing

The tool set includes fixtures to service both the new-style and old-style trailing arm bushings.  The old-style is a conventional bushing with a one-piece outer shell.  The new-style bushings have a two-piece outer shell and are being supplied by BMW and aftermarket channels as universal replacements.

This kit is the first to feature ball bearing thrust plates on all operations … this reduces the amount of force required and prolongs tool life.

The ability to service these bushings on-the-car saves hours of labor and avoids significant disassembly of suspension and driveline components.
