Audi 100 (1989) poor cornering

My recently acquired 1989 Audi 100 Avant is not very good at going around 
corners - constant adjustments need to be made to the steering wheel, so 
obviously it needs some new bushings/shocks etc.

I would be grateful for any recommendations as to which bushings are most 
likely to cause this problem.  I think the shocks are suspect anyway as they 
are probably original (the car has done 115k) and they rattle a little over 
deep potholes.

I used Boge Turbo Gas shocks on my 80q with excellent results.  Should I go 
for these again for the Avant?  I don't want to end up with a stiff 
suspension - the car is a family car intended for long comfortable journeys, 
but it would be nice if it went around corners without scaring me silly.
