Best place to source rear m3 wishbones?

What is the best place to source rear m3 wishbones? I'm building up my list of suspension components for a large upgrade and I am having trouble finding these at a fair price. I want the rear m3 wishbones so I can use rear m3 struts.

Maybe I just suck at the google.

Thanks in advance.

when you say m3 wish bone, do you mean M3 rear control arms?

If you are looking at the rear M3 control arms, try ECS Tuning or FCP Euro. FCP Euro will price match and give you a lifetime warranty. They were selling the front & rear M3 control arms in a kit for $670.00 for a while there during the winter.

The rear lower wishbone is slightly longer than the 335 wishbone.

Its also lighter as its made of aluminium. Better travel.

I think it also should allow for another inch of strut travel before bottoming out iirc.

Ebay. Get used. Is not about being longer or lighter for better travel. Is just more compliant because the shock can rotate compared to being stationary at non M that limit the shock performance.

Harold sells a kit with the appropriate hardware at HP Autosports. That's where I got mine, fwiw.
