Stabilize moving shot in FCP

Shot some stuff with a car mount and although it came out well there are some sections with a few small bumps. I was wondering what the best way to stabilize the shot would be.

Thanks

Doesn't FCP have something built in? I think they call it smoothcam....

Smoothcam in FCP6 and later BUT I suggest rendering out the "offending" section of the clip you need stabilized and reimporting just the part that needs stabilizing as Smoothcam analyzes the ENTIRE clip AS CAPTURED, not just the section between the In and Out points.
