I wrapped up the control arm replacement on my 1995 318ti (161,000 miles). I still see play at the wheel that appears to directly transfer to the link about 1 foot up from the rack. The play at the wheel, to my naked eye and feel, is mirrored to the wheel on the other side of the car. I believe this is a clear indication that I have a significant problem at the steering linkage itself and this problem would outweigh any minor issues with tie rods or the rack. I have a Bentley manual that I am going to crack open now and I posted on Bimmerfest too. People seem to like to help and I am just a dog for data. PS. A floor jack in conjunction with a heavy vise works well to press on Control Arm bushings. A 7/8 flat washer fits perfect over the bushing too.
