I have a 330ci 2001. Yesterday after about 30 minutes of driving, the steering started shaking left to right as if the wheels were going to fall out. I got under it and checked the lower steering column connection ( steering guibo), the drive shaft guibo, tie rods, lower arm control bushings, breaks and none seemed damaged. The steering has normal play, and the only things that looked like they need replacement are the stabilizer bar front swing supports - the rubber covers at the connections are worn out and broken. However I have been told that these would not cause the steering to shake so out of control. After taking everything apart and put back together i took it for a drive and it took about another 20 minutes to begin but this time not as bad and as soon as I stopped for 5 minutes it went away. Today the same thing, drove 30 minutes, it started for a bit and then it stopped again.
Does anyone knows what this is all about? I am getting very confused now and short of taking the rack and pinion system apart I dont know what else it could be. mind you, the r & p system is not loose at all.
Anyone, please help
