No noise at all, and I just installed my winter wheels. Both rear wheels have the same amount of play too, chassis has 180,000km, but like I said it takes a lot of effort to show play. it feels like it's coming from behind the spindle/knuckle area, it's hard to tell doing it solo, I'm assuming bushing related?

Going to hop on realbmw and get a screen shot maybe

EDIT: ok looks like it may be the integral link pt# 33326770749 from the website, I know it's not the bearing as the complete spindle/knuckle moves. Part #4 in the diagram.

Ahhh, gotcha. Yeah might be best to just have someone under there while you are moving it around.

Does the X keep it's rear alignment? If so... I'm not sure I'd worry about it until it made noise or couldn't keep an alignment.

What does everyone else think?

alignment seems to be fine by the looks of it, I can push the car side to side without any noises. It's the weirdest thing lol, my one friend said not to worry about it either til it started showing more signs. Hopefully it'll be sold by then haha.

yea seems there's a joint on either side of the integral arm, which is where I'm assuming the play is coming from lol. I'll try to get it on a hoist this weekend and get a video.

Not overly worried about it though lol, only asking another 10,000km out of this BMW before I sell it lol

This is likely the case. I just pulled/replaced my rear ball joints over the last couple days

The upper control arms, integral link and guidelines were all in reasonable condition so it seems but the ball joints were obviously trashed. Lots of play in them.

I have the tool for pulling the joints available if you'd like to rent it from me. Alternatively you can buy it for around $120 plus shipping.

Rear suspension refresh complete! The X is back on the ground! Next-up:

1. Front (lower) control arms (maybe this weekend)
2. Alignment! (maybe next weekend)

^tmv, what happened to your front bumper?
Funny thing, I was just thinking the other day of some LED's in the bumper...
Was thinking to go get some from Mercedes or porsche and put them right under the fog lights in the black piece of plastic..but it would involve precise cutting and refinishing of the cut-out...I bet it would look awesome paired with some bright AE's like V2's from umnitza

I installed a new rad, old rad had a serious leak, while I had the rad out I installed a new AC belt. One of the PS muffler supports broke off so I removed the muffler and took it to work and welded it back on. The rubber isolator support for the other mount on the muffler broke due to having to support the whole thing by itself so I replaced that as well. I had to drive my old 95 Jeep Grande Cherokee for a week while waiting for parts, I LOVE driving the X5 again.
