Question Car shimmies when changing lanes

Only happens during highway speeds. All CP OEM suspension parts. Had aftermarket wheels for years, but this started happening recently. Haven't hit anything or changed anything. Thoughts??

If aftermarket wheels then inspect them, check lug nuts torque or you have a suspension arm bushing that's gone out.

Thanks. What's the typical mileage that the bushing fails on the F10s?

Depends how hard the car was cornered, bad road condition and humps can reduce bushing life and it's hard to find the worn bushing or link in the multi link suspension. The lower front control arms take the main wear and tear.
* could also be a dried out control arm ball joint that's vibrating.
