*Rogue Engineering Front Control Arm Bushings for 1987-2006 BMW 3-Series + M3 [E30/E36/E46] (FCAB)


Quick Overview

Get the best front control bushing on the market for your E36, E46 from Rogue Engineering!

Sku # : Rogue-Engineering-FCAB-E46-ER

Rogue Engineering has spent hundreds of hours in order to bring you the best and most durable performance Front Control Arm Bushings (FCAB) you can find.  Rogue decided to make these FCAB's out of a unique combination of CNC'd 6061-T6 aluminum and high performance urethane.  No other manufacturer has been able to create a FCAB that can keep up with a track junkie yet with an increase in Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) until now.  Rogue has pioneered a completely new type of bushing that will change the industry forever.

***NOTE: If your E46 NON M was made in 2001 or earlier you require a 60mm bushing

Rogue Engineering Performance FCABs
With the numerous delrin/urethane/hybrid replacement bushings in the market, Rogue Engineering vows to make something that was not only effective, but simple.  No clips, no washers, no multiple sleeves, no "race parts in street cars".

Some of the feature benefits of Rogue Engineering Performance FCABs include:

  • Serviceable/rebuildable (replacement of bushing insert)
  • Urethane insert prevents unwanted control arm deflection while allowing NVH isolation
  • Eliminates steering shimmy and wander, especially with the addition of big brake upgrades
  • Unchanged steering geometry
  • Direct "connected" feeing with front end of vehicle
  • Easy to install (professional installation recommended)

Rogue Engineering Performance FCABs Applications

  • BMW E46 Including M
  • BMW E36
  • BMW E30

Rogue Engineering Performance FCABs Installation Notes

  • Access to the underside of the vehicle is required and professional installation is recommended.]

  • The RE Performance FCABs reuse the factory "lollipops", as the aluminum sleeve of the FCAB is pressed into place (hydraulic press is required for removal of stock bushing and installation of RE FCABs).

  • Non-E46 M3s had both 66mm and 60mm ID housings.  Most standard E46 vehicles produced before 2/01 used 60mm ID housings.

Am I in need of new FCAB's?
Factory bushings are more than adequate for street driving.  However, when the miles start to pile up, the bushings are meant to be replaced.  Common side effects of worn factory FCABs include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Steering wheel shutter when brakes are applied
  • Wheel (and steering wheel) shimmy
  • Mysterious and irregular tire wear
  • "Overboosted" steering feel (very light steering)

Replacing factory bushings, with new factory bushings will return the factory feel.  However, Rogue Engineering offers something that gives you MORE.

In Rogue Engineering development, Rogue Engineering was able to limit the amount of bushing deflection while also controlling the amount of NVH being transmitted through the bushing itself by the durometer of the urethane insert.  Rogue Engineering discovered that increasing the durometer stiffness (to nearly the harness of plastic or Delrin), Rogue Engineering was able to limit the movement of the bushing so that it didn't move at all.  However, Rogue Engineering got too much NVH to be used in a street driven car.  When Rogue Engineering reduced the durometer too much, Rogue Engineering had a very comfortable bushing, with stock-like performance.  Of course, with Rogue Engineering goals, Rogue Engineering was looking for performance one could live with everyday. 

Rogue Engineering Performance FCABs E30/E36 Versions
The E30/E36 version is available in "centered" and "offset" versions.  The offset versions were used on 1995 E36 M3s, and offered slightly more caster in the suspension geometry.  Using offset version bushings in vehicles not designed for them require an alignment.
