Exclamation 97 318ti Trailing Arms!

Recently hit a curb quite hard with the driver's side rear wheel thus "possibly" hurting/bending my trailing arm (s).

I'm in desperate need of a swift swap. if anyone's willing to sell me their used ones or find me some.. PLEASE don't hesitate to inform me. I Need these pretty bad, guys.

Shoot me links, pics, and offers.

Yes I've posted just about everywhere trying to get my hands on that specific side - if not a pair (since I can't be too picky with such part(s))

How can I count on their reliability? Cheapest one I found from a junk yard was $350.. with over 180k miles on it.

You might want to have it checked out before ordering, could be something else, since you seem unsure that this is the problem.. perhaps you just blew an old 20$ bushing. Subframe bushings dont last forever either. Just a thought.

I had it checked by a shop that didn't know left from right. They labeled them 'rear control arms' and called it a day. lol..

Through research I found out it was the rear trailing arm (s). And perhaps bushings.

Problem is, my wheel is bent inwards horizontaly by a few minimal degrees. I just assumed it was trailing arms
