When I had my suspension replaced, Patrick discovered that my center bearing support was toast. Not just worn, but shredded to bits. Very odd, considering there was absolutely no vibration at any speed; car drove perfectly.

I always do it right the second time.

OK, so how did you do that? I was able to post pictures before Photobucket changed its format (right click, click on img). Now, I right click on a picture, and there is no img code.

Thanks.

Never mind, I saw that I could go back to the old Photobucket format, problem solved. Didn't like the new format anyway.

Where did you get the Bilstein struts or are they stickers. The center bearing should be looked at frequently as these caes are for the "tinkerer".

They're the stock struts.

Seriously. You're *this* far away from a driveshaft leaving the car (and hitting some poor bastard) event. Please use lock nuts or at least washers.

Bought the car in June of this year. PO must've omitted the washers. I am well versed in the use of washers.

Update: They are the stock strut housings, obviously new Bilstein struts.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
