BMW 735iL Loosness in the Front Suspension Due to Worn Tension Strut Bushings

(3 reports)

The front thrust rod bushingsalso referred to as tension strut bushingsare known to fail occasionally. The oil-filled rubber mounts weaken and crack over time, causing a mushy road feel and shuddering in the steering wheel when going over bumps. These worn bushings should be replaced.
