E92 rear wheel removes question

Had the rear wheel off today and noticed this.

I'm no mechanic but I'm guessing this isn't good???

Depends if there are cracks. Those rods are split like that by design.

It does look like you have a good bit of corrosion (or maybe it's just dirt). so they may need replacing.

If the arm are in fact gone, consider upgrading to M3 guide rods. It's a slight handling upgrade.

Yeah they’re built like that. Nothing wrong structurally.

They are design that way to collapse during impact to prevent subframe and chassis damage. That look bent. I have few good used. Pay shipping only and is yours.

Yes I had a brake calliper stick on during a long trip so loads of break dust everywhere.

I'll look into the M3 upgrade
