Default 2000GT is vibrating in curves

my 2000gt is vibrating when going into right and left curves.It is fine when driving straight. Could it be the rear end?

Your steering rack bushing may be going out

My friends BMW does that and we have yet been able to troubleshoot it.

If it were my guess I'd say check the tie rod ends.

Default vibration in curves

It vibrates more in a left hand curve than a right hand curve. It even shakes the steering wheel.
