My Ride: 2002 330i

my car was doing like that one. all it was was the rear control arm bushing. i replaced the OEM with the Meley HD set for $90 from Autohaus AZ:
there's a DIY here
they replaced the whole arm, but i only did the bushing. i've got 95k on my car and the ball joints on the arms are fine. i followed that DIY until basically the end of the first post. i just took the bushing off. i didn't take the whole arm off. HUGE difference afterwards. make sure you get a 3-jaw puller to get the bushing off the arm, or your life will be hell like mine was!
