03 325ci sport suspension issues?

ok so i have an 03 325ci w/the sport package...
car has 72k, bought it with 64k.

Baron BMW in kc mo says my control arm bushings are bad and that they're leaking.... that they're liquid filled with hydrolic fluid???

OK i worked for Ford as a parts counter guy and i've never heard about bushings leaking...

I asked the parts guy at baron, and he said the service tech writers are full of it, but yet they want $550 to replace just the bushings...

I felt like an idiot so i just told them to check my blinker fluid...

the car does need new tires all around, prob an alignment, and at 80-100mph the font end shakes. yeah theres alot of things that it could be, and i've read that it could be the control arms, tie rods, and thrust arms?

any imput would be amazing cus I dont know alot about bmw's just they can be a pain...

hi, i had the same problem on my 325ci sport, i changed the control arms and bushes and it sorted it out. it cost me about £80 for arm and bush each side, so £160 for both! but i fitted tem myself. hope this helps.
