Steering wheel shake!

Ok so i put new powerflex control arm bushings in the front of my 01 330i about a month ago and every since i put them in i have a horrible steering wheel shake with anythin above 55MPH. The tires on it are brand new, only like 1 month to 2 months old. I have taken the tires off prob 3 times and rotated and rebalanced all of them and the shake wont go away. I checked all the ball joints, tie rods, etc and everything is tight. I even sanded the hub and rim and rotor surface to make sure there is no rust or corrosion in between them. Can any one give me some advice. This shake is getting anoyying. Im stumped!

Jack Dabsy will become famous soon enough
Could be one of many things... Buckled rotor, Slack rack/tie rod or even wheel nuts/lockers !!
If they are custom wheels, it could be a failed spigot ring...
Hope this helps... DAZ
