how often do you kids replace your control arms on your p80 AND with what? Lemforder is the OE right?

Its the only thing in my entire suspension that I havent replaced as of late in years (its been done back in the day) and I still have loose steering on the highway (maybe its the 'toe'?) and what hurts the most is some noises/clunk on small low speed bumps (axles are relatively new too - raxle axles in fact)

They are relatively cheap to replace, so do it.  If the toe has gone neutral, the car will wander more than if there is the normal slight toe in.

Toe alignment issues will case excessive tire wear.  I replaced mine in December because of toe issue, and the rear bushing on both were worn out.

I am on my 3rd set since owning the car, but I do have a lot of miles on it.  :)

i think its my rack too - i need to purge/replace fluid to start

i just had a pretty lengthy alignment at a local shop after re-doing the entire suspension with coilovers... my alignment, to me, is fine 

only things that arent new are the control arms and tie rods (but they have less than 20kmiles but are probably 10 years old)

and to add - the steering is only super loose on highway - i can make minor adjustments with the wheel and nothing happens. my buddy said to adjust toe to see

in the process of buying new ipd front sway mounts/poly bushings - mine are plenty old enough and have never been re-lubed

Last time I installed mine I added zerk grease fittings so never have to R+R to lube them again; did it to both cars; works well.
