    hi i lowered my bmw 330ci sport on coilovers on the weekend and fitted short droplinks, i need to replace my lower control arm bushes on the front and the rear trailing arm bushes but i do not know what size to buy, i plan to buy powerflex bushes and i know they come in 60mm or 66mm for the front but is there any difference in the rear size, also is there a standard size for my year of car, also i have access to a four wheel allignment kit but i am unsure on how to allign the rears can anyone help me, many thanks stu

    Think all the cars with Mtech suspension were fitted with 66mm, if in doubt you can measure them in situ or call
    local BMW dealer parts dept with your vin no. and they'll tell you what size are factory fitted.

    The RTABs are all the same for the E46 except for M3 sorry can't advise on the alignment as I always use pros
