UUC Adjustable Control Arms - $349 (FREE SHIPPING!)
The Ultimate Adjustable Rear Control Arms
Plated 4130 Chromoly Steel
CNC Machined Aluminum Ends
All Hardware Included
Why use adjustable rear control arms?
With a lowered car (either for street or track use), the non-adjustable original arms cause unwanted negative camber - the tops of the rear tires angle in too much, causing uneven tire wear and unwanted effects on handling. The adjustable rear control arm corrects this problem and can be tuned for any lowering, whether a street car ro a full-on race car through a +1.0° to -3.0° range.
Co-developed with OE-supplier SPC Performance, the combination of OE engineering and UUC's enhancements make these arms truly "ultimate".
With so many alternate choices, why UUC?Aluminum center rods are known to bend and fail under extreme use or after extended use (build-up of strain/weakening). Failure of a suspension part that keeps the wheel in place can be quite dangerous. UUC's chromoly center rods are the strongest in the world, virtually unbreakable in this application.
The wrench-fixing point of UUC's chromoly arm will not "round off" like the fixing point of aluminum arms.
UUC's original-style bushing is silent, and does not have the squeaks and rattles associated with the use of heim joints or spherical bearings.
The combination of aluminum ends and chromoly steel center bar results in a reasonable weight, a balanced combination of mass and strength.
UUC's stress-relieved aluminum cleavis end is not only very strong, but is also much more precise in fitment than stamped-steel alternatives.
UUC's custom-made proprietary design resolves many of the issues with other brands:
Construction details:Center bar: plated 4130 chromoly steel.
End components: CNC-machined anodized aluminum for lightness, stress-relieved for strength and durability.
Inboard bushing: high-durometer squeak-free rubber.
All hardware included.

H&R OE Sport Springs
||H&R OE Sport Springs lower your vehicle subtly, giving it a slightly more aggressive stance without radically changing its appearance. Designed to enhance front-to-rear balance and street handling performance, OE Sport Springs take the "wallow" out of the stock suspension, yielding a more taut feel and improved ride characteristics. All this while retaining the ride comfort you're accustomed to.
E36 32X and M3 Fitments - In Stock - ships in 1 - 2 business days
|* The price is higher for the '96+ M3 fitment because H&R requires larger '95 M3 upper spring plates to be used. H&R expects you to buy your own, but at understeer.com they are included to save you from having to make a trip to your local BMW dealership. If comparing prices, keep this in mind.
H&R Sport Springs
||The most popular spring in H&R's line-up, Sport Springs will lower your vehicle an average of 1.5 - 2 inches (depending upon the model of your vehicle) for a lower center of gravity, improved handling and a more aggressive appearance. Sport springs feature a spring rate that is firmer than that of the OE Sport spring, but is still comfortable enough for daily use. Sport springs are an excellent choice for street and occasional track use.

UUC SwayBarbarian (Gen 2 / Free Shipping)
When setting out to design their SwayBarbarian, UUC looked at some important criteria which others had not
addressed. There is the issue of stiffness characteristics which
were achieved, but to set the system apart from others, they have
incorporated some unique features found only on the SwayBarbarian.
Attention to Detail
As an example of our attention to detail, the E36 M3 Sway Barbarians is a
very unique set of bars. The rear is an asymmetric shape, allowing
for a fit unlike any other aftermarket sway bar. Most aftermarket
swaybars will usually wind up hitting the exhaust system under full
droop situations (when the rear suspension is complete extended such as
on a lift). The Sway Barbarian has a unique bend to less this
possibility. Was this advanced engineering? Was it rocket
science? Was it difficult to design? The answer to all of
these questions is no. It's common sense.
Whereas most BMW aftermarket bars are made
from either 1020, 1026, 1040 or 1045 mild steel, the SwayBarbarian is made from
4130 chrome moly spring grade steel. Whereas mild steel bars bend
easily in the Vector CNC bending machines, 4130 is more difficult
to do so. Because of its "springy" nature, it wants to
return back to its original shape requiring more work to get it into its
final shape. Chrome Moly is approximately twice the price of all
forms of mild steel.
UUC put their bars through this extensive
process to insure that the final product will be the strongest, most
durable bar on the market, and that it will be the most resistant to
form alteration. Currently, there are not other BMW aftermarket
sway bars using this material or method of manufacture. When cold
forming, the tight radius of the bends are the most susceptible to
weakening. Whereas a mild steel bar may never fail in the
lifetime of the car, UUC wanted to ensure that the SwayBarbarian's do not
lose their "spring" or "effectiveness" over
time. UUC Motorwerks continues to produce and market products
far above "suitable" standards.
The SwayBarbarian uses a multi-hole system on the front and
rear bars which allows for fine tuning of the bar for whatever
desired effect, without sacrificing body roll.
The E36 M3 and E46 SwayBarbarians come complete with adjustable rear sway
bar links to replace the factory rubber links. Instead of using
non-adjustable, rubber-bushing factory links and modifying them for use
with adjustable swaybars, UUC includes these custom made, ultra-high
quality end links. They are more expensive than modifying factory
links, but they feel that the benefit of being able to fine tune the fit
justifies it's cost.
These rear sway bar links are complete with:
Urethane bushing end links with adjustable rods (optional Aurora bearing spherical ends)
18-8 stainless steel jam nuts and studs
Grade 12.9, blue coated M10 hex head cap screws
18-8 stainless steel washers
Grade 8, M10 locknuts
Custom spacers for mounting into stock location (not pictured)
The UUC SwayBarbarian set is specifically sized to deliver
"neutral" handling. Note that this is in direct
comparison to larger bars that are available which will negatively
effect handling by enhancing undesirable understeer characteristics.

(not available for Xi yet)
|'01-'03 E46 M3
After the bars are CNC mandrel bent and
the ends are forged and punched, a silver powdercoat is applied for a
smooth, long lasting finish in a similar process to how factory bars are
coated. This smooth finish allows the bars, when properly
installed with polyurethane bushings and grease, for long term
performance with minimal maintenance.
The SwayBarbarians include replacement
polyurethane bushings which have a unique "rifle-drilled"
center. This allows for grease, when used during the installation,
to remain in the groves of the bushing for long lasting, quiet
results. Be sure to use generous amounts of grease to ensure maximum
performance from your SwayBarbarians!
Tubular - Why Weight? (E46 M3 Specific)
By selecting chrome moly as the material for their E46 M3 SwayBarbarian, UUC was also able to specify
another important characteristics: tubular construction. By using a tubular material, the overall
weight of the E46 M3 SwayBarbarian is reduced considerably compared to other aftermarket sway bars,
as well as compared to even the stock bars. For the ultimate in sway bars,
UUC uses seamless 4130 Chrome Moly in their E46 M3 tubular sway bars.
Weight savings are substantial... for example, their front swaybar saves almost 10lbs
compared to the original bars! When unsprung weight is the enemy, the Tubular SwayBarbarians is
your weapon. Whereas most tubular bars as also made from mild steel, they prove to be
weaker than solid sway bars. However, by using the higher grade stronger 4130 Chrome
Moly material, you're assured that the tubular sway bars are just as strong as their solid counterparts.

UUC Front Control Arm Bushing Set (Free Shipping)
The OE design of the FCAB is a simple rubber bushing. The part itself is subjected to torsional forces (twisting), lateral forces (side to side), and longitudinal forces (in and out). While this basic rubber design results in a quiet and comfortable ride, it also wears out quickly and has negative effects on performance/enthusiast driving. Specifically, the indicators of worn FCABs are steering wheel shimmy, looseness in the front end, irregular tire wear, sloppy steering response, and suspension geometry changes while cornering.
UUC's all-new design incorporates many unique features designed to permanently address these problems while giving the functionality of a race-spec component that also maintains normal street car comfort and vibration absorption. Rotational bearing accommodates all torsional forces without affecting outer bushing material. Bushing material absorbs noise and vibration.
Results will be felt immediately as improved steering response and feel, and a more "connected" feeling with the chassis.
- E46 fitments (1999-2004 330, 328, 325, 323 and 2000-2006 M3 - not for Xi models) include the aluminum "lollipop" bracket.
Important: all standard models (not including M3) must use the latest 66mm control arms/wishbones, BMW part # 31 12 6 774 819 (left) and 31 12 6 774 820 (right).
- E36, E30, and Z3 fitments (1984-1999 M3, 328, 325, 323, 318, MZ3 and all Z3, including iX.) can be purchased complete with steel "lollipop" bracket or as the bushing itself for centered bushings allowing Original brackets to be re-used. Offset ('95 M3 sytle) bushings are only available with brackets included.
