My Ride: 2002 330xi
wobble

Hey folks, I'm hoping you can help diagnose a problem with my 2002 330xi. I had new axels and CABs done within the last year, so I hope it's neither of these.
There is a sound coming from the front end, very much like the banging around Ive heard in other cars when the front struts were gone. Much more present while going over bumps at lower speed. It's a banging sound and feeling, not grinding or clicking, and no shimmying under breaking or acceleration. So I am assuming it is the front struts. However, there is also a wobble that comes on at about 50mph and dissapears again around 60mph. Again, it dissapears if you brake or are taking a turn or accelerate. But, cruising along at 55, I feel it coming through the steering wheel. Could this also be the front struts?

-Thanks, Luke
