If you have ever been in your E46, Z4, or F22 and started to put the car in gear or take off from a dead stop, you may have heard and felt a loud ‚Äúbump‚Äù coming from the rear of the car. It sounds like there is something trying to escape out of the trunk of your car. Well, that's a sure sign of a worn/failed rear diff bushing. If you speak in BMW part numbers, then that's 33176751808, 33171093565, or 33316880637. This is the solid aluminum replacement for that bushing. This is the last diff bushing you will ever need to buy.
The E46, X3, F22, and Z4 all have 3 diff bushings holding the differential. 2 smaller ones in the front, and one bigger rear bushing. This is for the bigger rear bushing. BMW part number 33171093565 and 33176751808. A bad or failed differential bushing should be replaced right away to avoid drivetrain damage. No to mention the thumping can get annoying very quickly!
This is the solid version of Garagistic E46 diff bushing. We also make them in Delrin for race application only. Both versions come with an aluminum insert as the factory did. Improvements will be felt in throttle response and the ability to transfer more power to the wheels. As always, they have the Garagistic lifetime guarantee.
Save yourself alot of time by getting the tools to do this job with ease! No need to burn the bushings out in most cases, we use this kit for almost every bushing removal/installation: https://amzn.to/3ooRNdv
