Front end vibration on low and high speed breaking

Asked by Apr 03, 2014 at 08:35 PM about the 2003 BMW 3 Series

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a shake on braking in the front end...I thought it was a warped rotor issue but that doesn't seem to be true. Heard it may be A arm bushings....Any ideas?

So you had the rotors checked out? If so, I suspect the CAB's or Control Arm Bushings worn. They usually wear out around 80K.

Car has 81k and is in outstanding condition. Is this repair expensive....DIY?

What about the CA themselves....I see two pressed in posts on the arm?

Having a shop do it, $200-$300

The pressed in post you are referring too are the ball joints. Have them inspected too.
