control arm bushing re. castor

After years of "playing around" with this '89 325is I thought I was ready for something more than the legal limit. New bearings, arms rods bushings wheels and tires and still a shimmy in the front end starting at 75mph and getting worse at 85.
The control arm bushing was hard to get right when I put it on and - maybe- it is not seated deep enough to keep proper caster in the front end.

Also - is the I.D. on the steel brake lines smaller than that on the standard lines. Again - lots of new brake parts with not much to show. Of course the calibers have a quarter million miles on them but do look good.

Buy more parts or fix what I got?
