Wobble, shimmy, shake between 30-35.

1995 325i convertible 5 speed. Between 30-35 mph, either in gear or not, I get a pretty good wobble, shimmy, shake, but then it mostly goes away at 40ish. I know the bushings, shocks, and struts are most likely original and need replaced. But any idea what specifically might be causing this at this speed?

Not wheel balance at that speed unless there is a house-brick stuck in the rim !!
Best replace the bushes or have the rack checked...
