    Hi All

    My car has developed the steering wheel jolt when i tap on the brakes and has started to feel a little wooly and free upfront. So im looking at doing a overhaul upfront and need help on what i need part wise... heard good things about Powerflex but then have also heard its good to replace ball joints, wishbones as well. Is there a kit or something i can buy which has all the bits i need?

    Would it be worht doing the read and is that as complex as the front

    Interested to hear peoples comments on what they have done to solve this and if standard parts will be ok?

    Cheers

    Is it worth getting these as well?

    BMW 3 Series E46 99-06 POWERFLEX FRONT ANTI ROLL BAR BUSHES 21.5mm PFF5-4602-21 | eBay

    Or will controlarms from Meyle solve this and ARB are a nice to have?

    Is it worth doing the rear...?
