I feel like the steering in my 89M3 is loose and twitchy. Anyone else experience this?

I have a feeling that it may just be me.. I went from an e28 535i w/H&R's, bilstien sports, and ST sway bars... to a much lighter and unmodified car... so of course it is going to be different... but I've never driven a BMW that felt sooo light on its feet.

In efforts to get rid of this, I went for a pricey solution.. I replaced both the front control arms w/bushings -- opting for the aluminum ones. It helped somewhat, but I still feel like it hasn't resolved the issue.

Am I just seeing things that don't exist, or are there other things I can do to tighten up the steering?
