Meyle HD control arm

HAMBURG, Germany – Meyle recently introduced a new series of Meyle-HD control arms for Land Rover models.

Noting that premature wear of the hydro bushing is a frequent cause of early control-arm failure, Meyle said it has replaced the hydro bushing of the original part with a full-rubber bushing.

“By using a high-grade elastomer material distinguished by its excellent resilience to tensile and compression forces, and by optimizing the part design, the Meyle engineers have devised a solution that significantly exceeds the service life of the OE version,” the company said in a news release.

As with all Meyle-HD parts, the control arms come with a four-year guarantee.

The new Meyle-HD control arms for the Land Rover Discovery III built from 2004 onward and the Range Rover Sport built from 2005 onward are available under the following Meyle references:

  • 53-16 050 0000/HD and 53-16 050 0001/HD: Range Rover Sport from model year 2005 onward
  • 53-16 050 0009/HD and 53-16 050 0010/HD: Land Rover Discovery III
  • 53-16 050 0011/HD and 53-16 050 0012/HD: Land Rover Discovery III

For all three vehicle applications, the reinforced Meyle-HD bushing can be replaced separately and is available under the Meyle reference 53-14 610 0000/HD.

Meyle engineers recommend that full-rubber bushings be replaced per axle and tightened down in a pre-loaded condition only. This helps prevent cracking and peeling of the rubber-to-metal bond while maintaining responsive driving dynamics. Upon completion of any repair work, an axle alignment must be performed.
