E30 & E36 Control Arm Eyeball Offset Arms - "Treehouse"
E30 & E36 Control Arm Eyeball offset Arms - "Treehouse"
These E30 / E36 Eyeball Arm brackets replace the control arm bushings and the OEM bushing 'lollipop' mount. These steel mounts come powdercoated red with a press-fit delrin insert center. This delrin insert is not only self lubricating, but does not wear like inferior UHMW. This setup is a step up from just upgrading to poly or delrin replacement bushings. Their biggest advantage is its design which will hold the control arm steady under all cornering loads. Because of its new geometry, there is no room for movement/play. This means this is one of the most solid setups you can achieve on your e30 without DTM style solid mounting.
The geometry of these eyeball mounts will eliminate the "shimmy" and wheel hop caused by stock bushings. These eyeball arms offer the greatest performance increases in handling and turn-in while still being 100% accepable for street use! There will be a very slight increase in noise but is well worth the trade off in stability. If noise is a concern we also carry poly control arm bushings that get pressed into your stock lolipop mounts. They cost less then these eyeball mounts and will have less noise.
Excellent for both regular Street or full Track use. Unfortunately, not Spec-E30/E36 legal. These are very similar to the discontinued "Treehouse racing" eyeball control arm bushing mounts. As with all of garagistic products; we offer a life-time guarantee. Price is for a pair (2 units). Enough to do 1 car.
Please note: These have the "offset" geometry found on E30 M3s and some E36 M3s. This offset found in these eyeball mounts offer a couple of slight features over the centered version,
SOME BENEFITS OF OFFSET GEOMETRY:
- Wider track
- More caster
- More camber
These will make a massive difference in front end grip and steering response. The factory rubber bushing was designed for comfort, not performance. They allow the control arm bushing to "float" in the center. Thats great to keep the noise down, but allows for TONS of play in the steering and wheel shimmy. When your bushings are old and busted the problem is even worse and dangerous.
