Suspension problem....

So I bought my BMW last summer and I've noticed since owning it when I hit a pothole or a deep manhole my car slightly rocks side-to-side. Well this summer I've put on new rims and tires and the rocking is getting progressively worse to the point where I feel I may fishtail and lose control of my car. By the way my suspension is stock new rims are 17x8 38 offset, alignment was done after the rims were installed.

Has anybody had this problem? and how did you fix it? Any thoughts or suggestions is also welcome

Your rear trailing arm bushings are worn!! Buy a new set ($15ea) from part source.. put them in the freezer overnight.. next day you'll have to drill/pry the old ones out and hammer in the new ones.. I did both of mine in 1 hr..

You're exactly right, took my car over to Bimmex for an inspection and that's exactly what they told me (amongst other things they "recommend" to replace). Will take your advice and head over to part source.
