What M3 parts don't need alignment?

Hi,

I borrowed this parts list from GreekboyD. Can someone please tell me what parts on here don't need alignment after install?

Front sway bar - 31352283515 - assuming this doesn't

Front lower wishbone/control arm (L) - 31102283577

Front lower wishbone/control arm (R) - 31102283578

Xenon regulation rod - 37142283867

Front tension strut (L) - 31102283575

Front tension strut (R) - 31102283576




Rear sway bar - 33552283655 - assuming this doesn't

Rear subframe bushings - (front, 2X) - 33312283382) - (rear, 2X) - 33312283383) - - assuming this doesn't

Rear guide rod (L) - 33322283547

Rear guide rod (R) - 33322283548

Rear upper link/wishbone (L) - 33322283545

Rear upper link/wishbone (R) - 33322283546

ABS sensor bracket - 34522283017

Megan Toe arms (Rear)


I'd like to see if I can get anything installed without having to do an alignment, or if it's better to wait and do everything in one go...

Many thanks.

All of them except the front sway bar. The rear sway requires alignment because the rear subframe needs to be dropped to access it; same thing with the subframe bushings.

Absolutely wait until you have all the parts and pay for one alignment.

What parts do you need to drop the subframe in order to install besides the subframe bushings and rear sway?

Thanks.

Only the ones you listed require dropping the subframe.
