Default Steering, front suspension, or something else?

Hi guys. 1991 740 Turbo, ~165K miles.

Over the past month or so my car has developed a pull to the left, which is steadily worsening. A few days ago I noticed that the steering wheel, when left to move on its own, judders back and forth in a rhythm. The rhythm is dependent on vehicle speed but independent of engine speed or transmission engagement.

I know absolutely nothing about steering linkage or suspension maintenance, can anyone tell me what's going on? Obviously it's bad, and I want to fix it ASAP before I'm left without a functional vehicle or in an accident.

I've been doing some reading to try to understand what's happening but I'm moving right now and don't have a lot of time to learn at the moment.

Thanks!
