Last Try- Inner Ball Joints

As we are all well aware, the inner ball joints have been NLA for ages...

Has anyone been able to source a set, or know where we could source a set? I would be interested in participating in a group buy if neccesary!

I really don't want to buy two new front control arms ($700+), but I will Iif I can't figure a set!

IF anyone has any information on options, please let me know!

You used standard 325i ball joints on an ix?

Nothing in the aftermarket to speak of, everyone I’ve talked to can’t find anything that works.

I just sold my last set of new ball joints.

I’m selling my used control arms with new inner and outer Lemforders and new OEM m3 solid bushings. Less than 1000 miles on them.

Asking 350usd +shipping for the pair

No no ahaha I did get them only to realize then that they're a bit smaller, so then I ordered the correct ones for the iX (Lemforder) ... I got mine from Altrom

Moog hasn't been making them for a while, but managed to find the Altrom parts previously mentioned:

I know that MTL isn’t actually shipping. Renn might be.

Yes, MTL is not shipping. I put in an order on the MTL site and waited for several months for an update. After some voicemails and some one-sided emails, I got an order cancel notification and no other information.
