Vibration and veering?

I feel a vibration when I hit 120km/h or more on the highway, and ocassionally my car veers a little to one side or the other, to the point where I have to almost fight the wheel to straighten out. I think I have a loose ball joint on my front right side. How can I check what the problem is, and how much might it cost?

I just love how the advertisement above this thread says "got vibration in your new wheels?"

Whenever you get a problem like this, work your way up from the cheapest to most expensive fix... so check tire pressure... check your rims and tires for dents and damage that may cause them to wobble. This might sound like a stupid question, but do you have the same brand of wheels on the car, and have they been changed at the same time. Go from there and best of luck

Send a message via MSN to e30_kid89
Best thing to do is to CALL Bimmersport for a accurate fast response.
