front control arm bushings on 2002 BMW 325Ci

are wheel bearing hub assemblies the same as front control arm bushings

1 answer
No, those are two difference parts. The control arm bushings are a smaller, cheaper part. The wheel bearing hub is a more significant part that houses all of the wheel bearings.

Control arms are commonly needed on BMWs at 60,000 to 100,000 or more miles.
