Question I got the shakes

Guys, I need help!
I got a serious vibration from 80-120kms.
I just put in M3 Eurospec front control arm bushings, and had 2 rims straighten (from potholes.)
And it still vibrates..Would an alignment help or is it a particular part(s).
Give me some feedback asap..I wanna go to Cayuga b4 Autonation.
Later & Thanks

Is the vibration in the steering wheel or the body of the car?

I had the shakes.. and it was the drive shaft

Question MORE NEWS

The shop I bring my car to has mentioned the alignment wouldn't do too much with the vibration. They said, since there was no vibration when my 14" rims were on (while my (2) current) rims were sent out to be straightened, that it's a rim problem.?
And yes, I have the cenforical rings for the hub and yes they are the right size. I would like to agree with but that means I gotta sell my rims & tires and find another set that won't vibrate?
How can I be assured that a) it is a rim issue and b) how can I make sure it won't happen with new rims?
I don't want to spend much $ then i already have to still have this vibration.
What would you do?

Switch back to your 14's and see how it drives. If it's smooth, then it's probably the rims.

That's exactly what I was going to say.

I'm not to sure about E30's but on E28s, E32s, and E34s vibration between 80 & 100 kms/hr usually means that your thrust arms/upper control arms and/or bushings are shot.

I doubt it's the rims though unless the offset is way off or they are mounted incorrectly.

I have the same problem with mine. It shakes at 100 - 120 km/h
my left mirror and rear view mirror vibrate. I am running 17's with a 30mm spacer and the rims are only a couple of weeks old.

Talking this is it..I hope

I found out the the hub rings that go with rims are too small in the inner of rim. It's fit around the hub of car ok but not small enough on inner diam. ALT is sending me 4 "correct" alum. hub rings on Mon or Tues it should be over then.
FYI..I already changed both f cont/arm bushings to //M eurospec and the rims & tires are fine.
You guys w/similar problems try that. Wheel balancing is good too..lol.

p.s thanks for all the help guys see u Sat
