Mein Auto: 530 xi wagon
530xi wagon front end vibration

My 06 530xi wagon has a vibration or shimmy in the front end when I apply the brakes. My frist thought was the rotors. My brake pad sensor indicates the pads are ok for another 21k and after inspecting the rotors they appear to be fine. Could the vibration be caused by the front control arm bushings and if so what is the best way to check them?
