: I've read past messages stating that this is a bushing problem. But what I don't know is what is the exact name of the bushings needing replacement and if the job is difficult or requires special tools. I've seen bushings labeled as "control arm" and "stabilizer arm" in variuos BMW parts catalogs. I'm a good weekend mechanic and usually do the work myself. Tires are recent and balanced.

This has happened to me twice and all I needed was a front wheel balance both times. Them damn pot hole!
