It turned out to be my front sway bars, which were not bolted down, after my recent water pump/thermostat change.

My question, is, at 89,000 miles, is it possible to reuse my oem's? Can one change out the bushings, for instance, and reuse these at all, or should I just ditch them?

Per the TIS, BMW allows one bushing change on the tension struts. I believe the part number of the bushing is 31126763719 is ~$41 thru Tischer.
~199K miles. I -still- don't fear my 335i.
