Really Bad Bump Steer!

My 93' 325is has incredible steering, touchy but I like the responsivness, However the trade off is the nasty bump steer. A small crack or a bump is enough to veer the vehical off course. So my questions are: Why am I getting bump steer? What can I do to tighten up the steering and if there is no simple solution then whats an estimated cost to fix?

How wide are the front tyres and did you recently change them?

TBH I have the same issue... I changed from standard 225's to 255's and noticed lateral movement even more, but I suspect its suspension related... Maybe a droplink, joint or top of strut rubber ! Just have a closer look to be sure... Good luck !!
