    Last Try- Inner Ball Joints

    As we are all well aware, the inner ball joints have been NLA for ages...

    Has anyone been able to source a set, or know where we could source a set? I would be interested in participating in a group buy if neccesary!

    I really don't want to buy two new front control arms ($700+:shock:), but I will Iif I can't figure a set!

    IF anyone has any information on options, please let me know!

      You used standard 325i ball joints on an ix?

      Nothing in the aftermarket to speak of, everyone I’ve talked to can’t find anything that works.

        I just sold my last set of new ball joints.

        I’m selling my used control arms with new inner and outer Lemforders and new OEM m3 solid bushings. Less than 1000 miles on them.

        Asking 350usd +shipping for the pair

          No no ahaha I did get them only to realize then that they're a bit smaller, so then I ordered the correct ones for the iX (Lemforder) ... I got mine from Altrom

            Moog hasn't been making them for a while, but managed to find the Altrom parts previously mentioned:

              I know that MTL isn’t actually shipping. Renn might be.

                Yes, MTL is not shipping. I put in an order on the MTL site and waited for several months for an update. After some voicemails and some one-sided emails, I got an order cancel notification and no other information.

                  I have also try to find in eu those, but no luck. I was order here and other one https://www.ebay.de/itm/2x-Traggelen...m2JYvkMIXhcdYM
                  But no, they was sending to me first X3 inner ball joint, then 8 pcs e30 rwd inner ball joint, there was one other like same ball joint seller, but no luck.
                  in their own part number system has fault, when those part number show/say it is for ix, but it is not. So don´t ever buy from there. I have found one seller, but they dont send out of italy. Then there is this https://russian.alibaba.com/product-...279874671.htmlBut no luck, no messages...

                  Then here us thishttps://www.facebook.com/groups/1135...7146241157220/ but lets see what will happen

                      Update, those ebay sale post..I would not ever buy from there, sell the wrong parts with the right code. Even though it says it would be the right part. I have heard Bmw sale now days innerballjoint`s, when in mine country local spare/oem parts store sell those. They cost about 100€/pcs.
                      I was getting from this dude, https://www.r3vlimited.com/board/member/37336-jute91 ask from her can he sell
