Suspension shake/shudder

I've had this problem with my 84 318i since i got it. It shakes/shudders when I go over 45-50mph and also when braking around the same speed. The rubber bushings are pretty shot and the shop where I got my tires last year said I might need tie rods. Does anyone think that could be it???
Tax time and I'm thinking of buying both any ideas on some good parts that aren't super expensive. I saw Bavauto had a "Front susp. kit-JL Germany. It has control arms w/ bushings, Lft and Rt. tie rods and sway bar links all for $220. Does this sound good?
