You will probably be close to $130 each?? Make sure you check the spelling on the Lemfoerder name as well. Make sure you get arms for a M5/V8 car as there are differences for the 6 cylinder cars.

As for other options,

Here is a list I am compiling from many members, not complete, but gives you some ideas!

Pelican parts - www.pelicanparts.com
Bimmian - www.bimmian.com
Bimmerzone - www.bimmerzone.com
Bimmerparts - www.bimmerparts.com
Bimmer Specialists - www.bimmerspecialist.com
DDMtuning – www.ddmtuning.com
AutohausAZ - www.autohausaz.com
BMW & Mercedes Parts - www.bmwmercedesparts.com
ESS Tuning - www.esstuning.com
RM European - www.rmeuropean.com
GET BMW Parts - www.getbmwparts.com (Tischer BMW / aka BMW of Silver Springs)
BMW Parts Center - www.bmwpartscenter.net (I think this is another dealer)
Bavarian Autosport - www.bavauto.com (not all OEM, but fast)
Rock Auto - www.rockauto.com Not OEM, but great for a ton of stuff and fast
The BMW Parts Store - www.thebmwpartstore.com

Hope this is helpful!

Try searching under the part number as well

Go to realoem and make a list of all the part numbers and then check pelicanparts, bvauto, tischer(getbmwparts) and eac. I found they all pretty much stock the parts, but have slight price differences that may or may not add up if you're doing a complete refresh. If memory serves me correctly I got the arms off pelican for like $130 +/- each, but getbmwparts had better prices on a lot of the nuts/bolts you'll need. And yes, at the very least you need to replace the self-locking nuts. The arms typically come with the nut for the balljoint side but not the self-locking nut for the subframe side.

Well, I did some Christmas shopping for myself today and ordered 2 TPS, 2 lemforder thrust arms, and 2 lemforder front sway bar links. Hopefully everything gets in in time for my 1000 mile round trip home for Christmas. I will keep you updated if it fixes all my issues.

A little update on everything: I got the thrust arms/end links installed last night. Wasn't too bad of a job but I cheated a little bit. I had access to a lift and air tools. Still took me about 4 hrs. with a friend but I'm sure I could do it again in half the time.

It fixed all my problems though, no more brake shudder or clunking over bumps and it seemed to tighten up the steering a bit as well. All is good!
