I have an 2001 BMW 325ci and the steering used to wobble like crazy. I read through a bunch of forums and found that it can be CAs and their bushings. I got the car up on the lift and changed the bushings and the CA ball joints seem to be fine. Most of the steering wobble went away, but there is still a slight shimmy. I am still unsure what is causing my steering shimmy.

When swapping my tires around I noticed that the driver side rotor and rim were extremely hot after a short drive and the passenger side was not. Can the heat and shaking be caused a wheel bearing? I jacked up the car and found that the driver side wheel doesn't turn as freely as the passenger side. If there is no noise can it still be a wheel bearing? or could it be something with the brake (like brake seizing)?
