E39 540i year 2000 thrust strut bushings

I have had a small wobble in the steering wheel when I hit the power, engine just starting to warm up. I do this after about 1 mile from my house I have a 3 lane with 80 KM so I open it up on my way to the first coffee. Would this be that thrust bushing?If it is should I buy the dealer replacement thanks. I also get a squeak from my drivers window when going up down every summer winter it goes away? Thanks for any help my ABS is gone this month also waiting for good code reader before I send it to BBA -REMAN I think that's the name for a rebuild.

This is not faq material, please post in appropriate places.

is this wobble constant or does it go away as you drive? please be more specific. thrust arm bushings usually give a shimmy feel at about 50-80, depending on the setup of the individual.
