Confused about Front control arm kit

Hello,

I just installed in my 135i 2011 front suspension:

- Front control arm kit from HP,which includes : Front lower wishbone kit & Front tension rod kit.

Now, I just realize that there is Hd front control arm upgrade.....

Is the hd front control arm upgrade included in the front control arm kit but with a different name ? Same part ?

Somebody have it installed ?

Thanks !!

I think the Hd front control arm upgrade kit is for the people who don't want to go whole hog with the M stuff. It is a upgrade over the weak stock arms/links. But not as good as the M links.

I'm just getting ready to order the performance bushings. How many sets do I need for the front end? Is it one set (2 bushings) or two sets? Looks like only one set for the Tension Struts, as it appears the wishbone uses a different style of bushing?

Just one set. One set comes with two bushings.
