Rear diff bushings - can we use the M3 ones or stick with the 335 ones?

I just put an order through for a number of replacement bushings on my car including the rear diff bushings. I'm wondering if I've made a mistake ordering M3 rear diff bushings (not rear subframe, just the rear diff ones). I got the M3 rear subframe ones as well and I know these will work.

What about the rear diff bushings? Will the M3 ones work on a 335i?

I had looked into this last spring when I did my subframe bushings but never got around yo doing it. If I remember correctly, they will fit and they are different part numbers- so on would assume te m3 ones are much stiffer. They are cheap too. ..try It out for us!

Did you ever figure it out if M3 rear bushing will fit. I know two front ones will but I am not sure about the rear as it looks like M3 one is solid.

Rear Subframe M3 bushings are a direct replacement (upgrade). Rear diff bushings from the M3 may not work as the rear diff, axles, and drive shaft is different in the M3. There are good options with the 335 for a more solid set of rear diff bushings from turner motorsport or DFIV rear lock down kit.

Holy thread resurrection batman.
