    What are the knuckles / hubs from? a 3.2?

    If will all fit, but you might need 3.2 topmounts if you have 3.2 hubs.

    3.0 litre arms are the same as the usual BMW stuff, but with heavy duty ball joints, the hubs have extra built in camber.

    You will be able to fit both, but try to use eccentric wishbone bushes, and if the camber is too much, you'll want to get M3 3.2 topmounts. They will fit your standard shocks without any problems.
