Hey Sean,

Sorry to hear about the problem, I understand how much of a pain it is. Lots of local shops that can do it. Where abouts are You located?? I am up in Roswell and can reccomend a couple local shops as well as in Buckhead who do excellent work. Ever thought about doing it yourself?? Send me an e-mail or post here and I will get back to You.

: Alright, everyone by now knows about the $#%#%#% infamous shimmy caused by the thrust arm bushings wearing thin.

: I sorta ignored my shimmy for the last year and now I have noticed it getting worse.

: Is there anyone in the Atlanta area that can recommend a local shop to replace these with the aftermarket or 7 Series bushings? My local BMW dealer will only put on the stock replacement E34 bushings. Since I plan on keeping the auto until 300K at least (I'm at 155K right now......)

: Thanks in advance!!
