I have a 92 325i, now when I go to stop, it seems that there is a slight wobble in the front end. Any ideas?

I'm with furious. Do you hear any squeeling when you press on the brakes?

Some squealing when brakes are used. That is when I notice a slight wobble.

Sounds like the rotors and probably need some new pads.
