      Try Paul Gray upper control arm bushings. I just got a set off ebay. He is
      in Australia so it takes about 10 days for him to ship, but once I replaced
      them, I have no more shimmy. These bushings are urethane so they hold up
      better and don't need to be machined like the 750il bushings fix. Here is a
      link to a current auction:
