I had Bilstein B12, new front and rear top mounts, and M3 upper and lower front control arms installed about 200 miles ago, followed by an alignment. All seemed well.

About 100 miles ago I had a new water pump and thermostat fitted. Now, with lots of steering input at parking speeds, you can hear a creak/crack/pop sort of noise from the front.

Hope this helps someone.
Sorry to revive an old thread but did you find out a solution to this kevinlevrone? I've gone through a set of lemfroeder end links in 30k kms and would like something more permanent.

Thanks

The clunking you hear is most likely your steering rack not being secured. It is loose and every time you turn left or right, it will shift and make that noise. There are two bolts you need to fasten down to 41ft-lbs near the center of where it attaches to the subframe.

BMW recommends to replace the nut and bolts, but you might be able to get away without replacing it.

Hope this helps.
