Control arms

Have these slightly used (less than few months) control arms from 335xi taking up space in my garage.
I changed the bushings on my old ones to Polyurethane, and replaced these.
Anyone wants to make me an offer?

I'd bet that a lot more people have bad bushings in these than they realize, at least in the northeast with all the potholes.

If I didn't already have a set waiting to go on I would be interested. Still not 100% sure its the bushings but I was experiencing issues where the car would jolt to the side a few inches under moderate to heavy braking in the wet at highway speeds. Pretty scary on a two lane highway with no shoulder due to construction. For some reason I don't see any symptoms in the dry.

That sounds like one of your calipers is getting wet more than the other.

Clunking al low speed is usually sway bar links. Control arms make it feel loose and sloppy.
