2002 BMW 325Ci Question: front control arm bushings

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

The wheel bearing hub is a more significant part that houses all of the wheel bearings. http://repairpal.com/front-wheel-bearing-replacement Control arms are commonly needed on BMWs at 60,000 to 100,000 or more miles. -
