Rear M3 control arms on 335i coupe

Hey all,

I've searched and I haven't found all the info I need yet. This year I'm replacing the suspension in the rear of my car. I am still deciding on spring/shocks. I have new bushings for the subframe. I'm getting the m3 front control arms as well.

My question is this, while I have the rear end apart, what should I replace with M3 bits? Guide rods, upper control arms, adjustable toe arms, camber arms (or just the bushings?) ???? so many questions.

The car is an 07 and lives in Canada so the suspension takes a beating in the winter

Thanks!

Only to toe arms aren't compatible with M3 and those make the most difference. Fortunately there are awesome aftermarket products:
-Megan, Manzo or GodSpeed toe arms
The m3 parts will help but won't be very noticeable. Instead spend the money on these:
-Monroe upper shock mount
-Monroe lower shock mount

I've got the shock mounts on my list. Thank you. I guess I'll add some toe links as well. I found an incredible deal on the M3 parts, so I'll continue down this path for now. Thanks.

Like posted above. The M3 toe links aren't compatible because they are shorter than the ones on the non-M cars.
