Control arms - namely the outer and inner ball joints can develop play. ~$85 ea. for steel ones, about $300+ for the pair (Aluminum)

Tie rod ends - All E30s excluding iX use the same ones (I can't recall price) $30 each?

Control arm bushing - Recommended solid offset M3 bushing. ~$100 for the pair

Sway bar links - ~$24 each

After all that perhaps you can go further and replace the motor mounts and transmission mounts and they work your way to the rear bushings.

BTW make sure your tires are not the problem first before spending all that money.
