problem with my suspension?
 
hey everyone,

i was wondering if i could get some help diagnosing a problem ive been having with my car the last month or two. lately, it seems that ride has gotten extremely harsh and bumpy from what i remember. so much so that i can feel every single bump on the road as if i dont have any shocks at all.

ive done a little research and will be checking the condition of my control arm ball joints, since my steering does feel a bit mushy from before. i used to take corners pretty hard (who doesnt!), but have lost confidence in my cars steering ability.

my car is a 2003 330ci with 83K miles and i'm wondering if i also need to look into replacing my shocks? i havent been able to find much info on shock lifetime and am hopeing someone can help me with a little wisdom.

if someone could recommend a good shop in the westwood california area that would be great too since i've recently moved to the west side.

thanks in advance!
sam
