Has anyone else had this problem? - I've replaced all the front suspension bushes & ball joints recently but I still have a rattle on light braking when I hit bumps. It sounds remarkably like the original rattle when the upper & lower bushes failed. There was a major mod from BMW needed to replace the bushes - a complete front bar assembly which bolts directly to subframe, and the bushes seem to be made of fairly soft rubber. Have I been given the wrong modification? I've also changed the shocks, their top mounts, roll bar links and brake discs, so it drives like a dream - but still rattles occasionally! Apart from earplugs, any ideas? 1990 E32 100k miles
