Damn, of course it's outer ball joints
 
So lifted my car today to see what was vibrating up front...both outer ball joints are shot. Working on ordering both control arms and Powerflex CABs from bimmerworld. Inners are still good and I don't really want to drop an additional $190 on new ones right now.

Vibration under braking or all conditions?

bostonsthename 02-16-2013 11:56 AM

all conditions, I had it up on a lift with my buddy at his shop, so I know exactly what it is.

Are you only doing one side?? I have a CAB that I would sell, there not available to buy just one

Doing both sides, both ball joints have play

just replace the inners while you are there. You can get them for 140 from OEMbimmerparts.
