ok i jacked the car up not the sway bar linkage that looked good saw that the rear trailing arm bushes are worn ...and my right rear tire was showing wear on the outer treads which were completly bald .... put on a new tire on it ...after inspecting the rear and seeing that only the rear trailing arm bushing was worn .. i have a question is this what is causing the loud banging and causing the rear end to dance ?

it is odd that the outside is wearing as most bmws are cambered out at the rear alot stock... 2 inches i think. make sure the control arms are bolted in and the bushings there are tight... that can give you the noise and the jump around. otherwise the trailing arms from factory are not all that strong so make sure there straight
