I'm going to give the OP some advice and it's up to the OP to fix it or not.

Please do not title a thread "hey". If I have to explain why, then you really don't belong on the forums.

Assuming you will FIX the title (you can edit it for up to 60 days from now you know), I will point you to some links below ... but I must admit I myself am not familiar with the problem so I'd recommend a title-only e39-only search for the keywords you need.

- How to do a complete overhaul of your E39 rear suspension (0) (1) (2) (3) (4) or just the rear subframe axle bushings (1) (2) or the rear upper control arm (1) or the rear shocks (1) & springs (1) & cv boots (1) & M5 sway bars (1) (2) with special tools for rear ball joint removal (1) & where to buy a rear ball joint press (1) (2) & what tools to use for the rear alignment (1) & what are the BMW TIS alignment specs & procedures (1) & how to do a reduced negative camber (1) or normal rear wheel alignment (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) & alignment with (1) or without extra weight (1) (2) (3)
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
