Steering shimmy

I hear the front ends of old E28's are kind of crummy.

Any idea what should be replaced when the front end shimmy starts?

Any help earns you a case of beer. (Sorry, no delivery).

hmmm........

Firstly, when was the tracking last done??

Other than that, suspension arm bushes and balljoints, track-rod balljoints, and drag-links are a good place to start.

Good luck¨!!
