996 40th anniversary bump steer

HI There,

My 996 40th bought in January with 39 K miles is giving me a lot of steer bump over unneven roads (common in the bay area to say the least...)

I have had a full alignment done and the tech highlighted that the front was difficult to align due to stretchted (worn) bushings (i believe mainly control arms ones).

I am looking for advice on:

> if worn bushes could impact the front alignment to factory recommendations? or is it that the shop did not know how to do the job on this car?

> what is the best place to start to remove/improve steer bump in terms of new bushings (toe links? control arms...)  i do not want to spend unnecesary time and money.

> has any one had the same issue? the car does not have a lot of miles but i suppose that the bushings also wear with time (i know that a previous owner was also running the car with bigger wheels, could this be a reason for early wear of the bushings..)

Thanks a lot in advance
