It's on original BMW part and you can't get aftermarket. Just shop around and see who has the best price. You could try getbmwparts.com as well. I've had good luck with those guys on the turbos for my 535i.

Thank you. GetBMWParts is selling for $185 after a 20% discount.

BMW Dealers online are offering a 10% discount and selling for $207.

Hence my question is if GetBMW parts is selling same part from BMW USA

Double joint. STEER.COL.-LOWER JOINT ASSEMBLY made by BMW. #32306758076

Genuine BMW is what they sell. You can email them and they are pretty quick to respond. Actually they only respond electronically. But as soon as you place the order it is processed, so make sure it's right. It was really quick getting my turbos. No issues with the guys at all.

I'm curious what the comparison is to arrive at tight steering. If the X5 is tight compared to some other brand, then the comparison is invalid. If the comparison is to another X5, then there can be stuff to fix.

My X has steering that is dramatically tighter than the Mazda MPV it replaced, but I paid extra for the tight steering. Without knowing what "tight" means, and whether it is in relation to other BMWs or other makes, there is no right answer to the question.

The new part I installed is not really new; it's removed from a crushed X5.

The job itself is easy, however, removing other parts, hoses and pipes to allow access would increase the task time to up to three hours.

No specific material is required, only some grease to unable easier insertion of both hexagonal and astral rod ends of the universal joint. You'll need to refill the cooling fluid as one water hose should be removed.

NOTE: some E53 come with quadruple rod end, not hexagonal.

Here we go. This is the mechanic


My last trial with this faulty joint was to put some grease. This made it tougher as in fact its internal X-link was severely corroded.


Removed


First end


Other end


This rod is coming from the steering wheel




















Got my sweetie washed up


And here we go


Thanks again pals; this is the best forum.
