Just a quick one,

There are 4 bushings on the two trailing arms - are they identical or should the outers or inners be eccentric to set toe/camber - I see you
can buy both concentric and eccentric from BMW but it's not totally clear to me as it states toe/camber is factory set, but bently shows an adjustable set if you need them - but no part numbers.

I have a "toe out" event going at the rear, and want to sort it out, probably just knackered bushes so looking into this.

I'm aware you can buy various kits for this - just wondering what the oem approach is.

many thanks you' all

and is it OK to drop the trailing arms with the callipers and half shafts attached for the easiest replacement of the bushes? I don't want to pull the CV's as it's too much hassle.
