What causes a groaning in when i turn right and a shake when i go over bumps

(1992 BMW 525i)
in Lincoln, CA on January 06, 2013
when i go over bumps there is a shimmy in my steering, and when i go to turn right there is a low pitched groaning that sounds like its comming from the suspension, at higher speeds no sound, left side only makes the sound when turning hard and then not very loud. problem also seems to be worse in morning when its 45 degrees out

A common problem with BMW's is that the control arm bushings wear out. You may also notice that when you brake it will rock forward and back instead of coming to a smooth still stop. A wheel bearing may also be the culprit. Without a visual inspection no one can say for sure. Come on in for an inspection.
You need to have your front suspension checked out to isolate the problem.
