Still twitchin'...........!

What's up fellas.

Looking for some advise...

I have a 2004 330i sedan and had developed a quick twitch in the steering wheel when I stabbed the brake pedal, which is a tell-tale sign that the front CAB's were getting tired. Well, I replaced them with OEM CAB's and although it's better, if I get on the brakes quickly, it still twiches upon initial contact. Gradual application of the brakes lends no steering wheel play, but if I have to quickly go from gas to brake, when I hit the brake pedal, the steering wheel twitches for a split second right when I grab the brakes.

I understand the CAB's are designed to have some play, to take stress off of other suspension components, but I don't think it's suppose to twitch in my hand when I get on the brakes.

I have had my front end evaluated for anything else that may be fatigued or loose that would give me that sort of sympton, but everything is nice and tight.

My question is this: If I replace my CAB's with a press-in Urethane unit from Bavarian Autosport or Turner, will that eliminate my twitch? Or do you think the OEM units I replaced them with are bad? Or any other advice/experience for me?
