I just got my car back from getting FCABs done... along with lots of other stuff.

Car used to slide from side to side because of play in the steering wheel, you really had to pay attention.

Wheel also would shudder a few degrees, especially under braking.

Now all that is gone and the car feels so nice a tight, its like new!

No mounts or bushings? Well... other than FCAB's I can think of engine mounts, transmition mounts (but you have an auto, so it affects you less maybe), and differential mounts.

EDIT: Ive hit 1,000 posts, just thought Id mention that

And yeah fcabs, rtabs and motor mounts are in my head right now.

Oh hey Jay, what kinda prices can you get on a manual trans

And another thing, every time I go up or down my drive way (on the curb) I hear a cracking sound coming from what sounds like the ceiling of the car...

You are always fixing something mechanically, and half the time I can't even tell anything is wrong...

If you want it to feel like new do the following.

Engine Mounts (2)
Trans Mounts (2)
Diff Mounts (3)
Subfame Bushings (4)
Front Control Arm Bushings (FCAB) (2)
Rear Trailing Arm Bushings (RTAB) (2)

I just did all these and although I replaced them all with solid components the car seems much more stable and speed and much more responsive.

I would just replace the motor, trans, diff mounts, and subframe bushings with OEM and FCAB's and RTABs with powerflex polyurethane.

I will tell you though that if you are going to do one of these I would do them all. The reason I say that is because to do the trans mounts you have to remove the exhaust, to do the engine mounts you have to remove the drive shaft, to do the diff mounts you have to remove the diff or the whole rear subframe. You get the picture. Give me a call and let me know what you decide to do, I've done all the listed above on my M3 and have DIY's or can come over and help.
