    e34 thrust arms reversed?

    Long time lurker and I've picked up a lot of knowledge from these forums. I'm still new too BMW but not automotive. Inherited a 1995 525i that had eaten a curb and needed pretty much the entire suspension redone. I've only been driving it a few weeks and have had the 50+ mph death shakes. Was just replacing the front wheel bearings (I knew the rh was bad) and noticed the thrust arm (upper arm) on the driver's side had an R cast into it, is it possible to install those arms reversed? I purchased 7 series style arms if that's helpful.

    So you bought E32 arms on purpose? To put into an E34? We're off to a great start.

    It's physically possible to screw up and install the arms reversed yes, just don't make that mistake when you're replacing them. You can Google reference pictures to double-check that you've got the correct arm in the correct spot.
