    Creaking rear suspension

    Hi,thanks for the reply,no rear tyre wear all even across the back,i cant really tell if i’m honest,but my little girl did mention that she could hear it from the back wheel as she was sat in the back on the passenger side,i know the pitman arms are fairly easy unless the bolts are seized up,is the other parts you mentioned hard to do?thanks in advance.

    Creaking rear suspension

    Hi chaps,need your wisdom again,i have a 95 ,525i sport, over the last few months it had a slight creaking from the rear over bumps and uneven surfaces,but as time has gone by it has got really bad more so as the weather has got hotter,i’ve tried spraying some penetrating grease which works for abit but then it comes back,i have tried researching the problem,and mist posts say,rear pitman arms,but before i order a pair i would be grateful for your input as in to if i need to replace anything else.thankyou guys.

    Correct tyre size

    Hi chaps,thanks for the reply's the reason for 19" is i just think they fill the arches perfectly,but saying that i had a set of my mates 18" fitted just to see what they look like,and tbh they looked perfect,so think i'm going to with the 18",the wheels i was looking at are called axe10's which are pretty near enough looking to style 5's,so tyre wise fronts 235-40-18 and rears 265-35-18 does that sound correct chaps?thanks.

    Correct tyre size

    Hey up chaps need your wisdom again,basically got a chance to purchase new rims,the wheel size's are 19-8/5 fronts and 19-9/5 rears,so what would the correct tyre sizes need to be without messing about with arches.the car is a 95,525i sport,with h&r front lowering spring and std rear's.thx in advance chaps.

    Right chap's bit of a update rang dealer's about the oil,and all they could tell me is,that the oil required spec is atf4,so rang up ecp and they have some triple qx plus which is the right spec,but when i saw a pic of the oil on the label it does not list bmw.what do you guys think?
