    E36 M3 Lollipop instal

    I am planning to instal new lower control arms and Turner offset poly bushes on my 1995 M3. The bushes came pre-installed in new "lollipops". I'm not sure whether I should put the bushing lollipops on the new control arms while off the car, or install the lollipops on the car first and then put the control arm on.
    The bushings seem to be s tight interference fit on. the new control arm. If the first option, how do I ensure it's on the arm at the right angle (other than eyeballing how it was on the old parts) as I'm not confident I'll be able to rotate the lollipop once it's on the control arm.
    On the other hand if I put the lollipop on the car first, I'm worried it might be s fight to get the control arm spindle into the bushing.
    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    Don’t over think this.
    Rough guess the orientation and pre-install the ‘lollipop’ assemblies on the Forward Lower Control Arm (FLCA).

    several
    If they are pre-attached; don't mess with it.

    Just visually line up things up good enough to recreate your original. If the poly isn't bonded to the spindle (99% sure it isnt) you will absolutely be able to spin it about the axis.

    Thanks guys! On further examination it appears that yes, the inner sleeve does indeed rotate freely within the ID of the poly bush.
