    Front pitman arm source?

    Hello all, went to get some tires changed and couldnít get an alignment done due to my damaged pitman arms. Safe to say I know nothing about suspension but will need to source one soon. Does anyone know anywhere to find them? Do they go by a different name on BMWs? Iíve been searching and wasnít able to find one.

    So you have the pitman arm off the steering box or you have the rear pitman arms, I think some people call the rear pitman arms dog bones as I recall, since you said arms then it would have to be the rear suspension parts the dog bones are 33321126476 or 33321125665 left and right are the same, the later number is probably the newest number. The steering pitman arm has a bushing that can be replaced 32211123464. Search the part numbers on line

    Thanks. Just found it. I wonder why it lists 32211123464 as “only compatible up to 86.” Id assume they all use the same bushing.

    Purchase well known mfg part, no cheap parts from china, the rubber will not last.

    Go with Meyle HD if you are getting thrust arm bushings.
