: 55 Mph Shudder

Hey guys. I'm just looking for a little bit of advice/information to go on here but I have a 95' 530i. Right around 55 mph the front driverside of the car shudders quite intensely and annoyingly. Either I'm forced to speed or just go way to slow to avoid the shuddering. I recently did some ball joint replacement on both front control arms. Just wondering what could be causing this problem? Just a little confused at how it only shudders at 55 and not at a faster or slower speed. Thanks. :str8pimpi

have you also had the thrust arm bushings replaced? If not, more than likely they are the problem.

make sure the tire is balanced first.

Definently check out control arms and thrust arms you should always do both sides also make shure you torque these arms while car is sitting level with full weight on these arms
