Loose Steering

Hey everyone,

I own a 1998 e36 m3. Every time I go fast around a corner it feels as if my steering gets light and the car hesitates to turn left and right. Sometimes the steering alignment feels a little off as well. Is it just the steering alignment or could it be something else?

Thanks

Have you checked the power steering fluid level, as they are known for leaks around all the hose area's........& sometimes the system gets aerated due to excessive leaks......other things to check: control arm bushings & tie rod ends for looseness......
