bumping this. added more options to the first post. I'm trying to find the best option for the wife's street/track car. I don't really want the spherical due to the constant road use. I could swap with the THR ones on the track E30 though... I'm not sure I could fit my ground out E46 control arms into such tight tolerances.

I remember there was a nylon one but I can't find it. That's the one I want the most. Anyone find it for me?

those last ones with the uhmw offset busing for $65 shipped look interesting.

It's very enticing. I like the delrin/uhmw bushing and feel it should be good enough for the backup track car. But still $65 I just can't justify spending right meow.

Alright guys, I need your help. Plan on refreshing the front end of my car soon (Z3 rack, tie-rods, IE poly steering coupler, control arms, CAB's, IE front sway kit) Coilovers will be in the somewhat nearish future. That said, what should I do for CAB's? The car is going to be autoX'd a lot, but it must still be very enjoyable on the street. I don't mind it being a bit harsh if it makes things feel more solid, but I do not want it to make the driving experience less enjoyable when on relatively smooth roads.

So, OEM, OEM M3, delrin/poly, treehouse style? Offset or centered?

You 100% want something M3 offset. You already posted in DontTrustThisE30's thread. I'd go with the THR ones he's selling. Very good price and the nylon inserts are $10 of you want SUPER fresh ones. I noticed more steering feel with them. It didn't kill the ride by any means. Still streetable but very responsive. There's no reason not to get them IMO.

Same as tony's question...

But for me, I agree with Yoshi. I have them on the 318 and it was not bad at all. Just pray when you take the lollipop bolts out they don't break like mine did... :( Go THR if you're allowed to do that in your classing.

For G Stock, no... but the plan is to switch to STX when I get the coils. Haven't actually looked into if they would allow the treehouse style CAB's, I am pretty sure the normal offset poly ones are allowed.

Would a solid aluminum CAB with a plastic insert be noticeably better than the condor ones?
