at 10:10 hes referring to the hole in the lower control arm and suspects it may be a carry over part from another vehicle. This hole is to mount a vibration dampener which is likely due to specific wheel size for that vehicle. For example, in the X5 and X7 with 22" wheels, these vibration dampeners are installed. It also talks in the repair instructions stating that if you have 19's without a vibration dampener and you install 22 (or whichever wheel size requires it) that you must install these dampeners.

Surprised a post without even a complete sentence makes the front page. We have to leave the site to learn what this is about? Lol

On my BMW X5 with 21 inches wheels I have also this damper

Exactly what I'm referring to. I think it might be 21 and 22" wheels.
