I have not driven the car in over 2 months because of this so everyone is safe. I'm looking for someone whom has done the repairs them selfs. I'm very mechanical but need to know if I will need to replace everything.
I've checked all of my bushings and alls look good. I've had bad experiences with the dealerships here in San Diego and would like to avoid them if possible.
thanks again .
Unfortunately, the repairs that may need to be made, especially if you have a problem with the rear subframe bushings, are tough from what I hear in that they require a lift and some special tools. Here is my advice: if you want to go the do it yourself route, you need to get a Bentley's e32 manual somewhere. They cost between $75 and $100, depending if you catch them on sale. If not, call the BMW Car Club of America (bmwcca.org you will find there phone number) and ask for a reference either to your local chapter for a good mechanic in your area, or directly for such a reference. If you are a member of the BMW CCA, and if you are not then you should be, then check the back of Roundel for a technical service advisor and ask them for their advice. I think there is one that might actually have a shop in your area. Good luck.
