High Performance Bushing Kit

I willl be overhauling the suspension on my 2011 e90 shortly. I use this car as a spirited dd. i drive allot of miles for my work and at present have 117k on my car.

Does it make sense to replace the various bushings in the car when i do the suspension? I have fiund this kit from Dinan and wondered if this is a good idea? Is there anybother recommended otpions and is this all I need to replace in terms of bushings etc?


Is Powerflex another option?

The Dinan kit is priced at more than those components are worth. Four of the bushings look like OEM M3 rear subframe bushings, a great but labor-intensive upgrade (4-5 hrs labor). Buy those separately.

In the interest of only paying for one alignment, consider replacing your front control arms and tension struts with the M3 versions. The ones you have now will inevitably leak and require replacement; that's not too far off considering your current mileage. The M3 parts are a no-brainer since they're about the same price as the standard parts.

I'd also suggest replacing your rear upper shock mounts. Some suspension kits include them, otherwise Powerflex is an option.
