These have never looked right to me.

With all the other examples of incompetency the "mechanic" previous owner has shown,

I see no reason bushings should be excluded. He installed the uro diff bushings backwards.

Something ain't right.  You should have meat on both sides of the arm. Dang, that must be clunky as all get go. 


Below is a picture of the Ireland bushings. Both front and rear.  Are you sure that they are the stock rear trailing arms?.  They may be from an early 3 series,  More pictures of the entire arm and brake assembly please.

The bushing set pictured is the set I believe PO ordered.

He put the Diff bushings in backwards (big side in.)

When he realized the pivot bushings were for a short neck diff subframe and not the smaller

carrier long neck diff frame, guy just cut off one end and jammed 'em in there.

Result was a binding, metal to metal, squeaking rear end and me having to do it right.


He also did the old "flip the subframe mounting bushing" trick too.
