E60 M5 steering wheel jerks to right with braking

2007 M5 with 66k on it. When you stab the brakes, the steering wheel jerks hard to the right. What am I looking at?

My e46 did this when the control arm bushing needed to be replaced. I'm not sure how the suspension is setup in the E60 though.

If you're going really slow and stab the brake does it clunk too?

Looks to be the same type of setup in the front as the E39. Not much to replace up there. Maybe just do both suspension linkages and call it a day.

#12 and 17

Thanks Brian, that's what I was thinking.

Pretty sure it's the control arm bushing. Replaced it and problem solved.
