Subframe / bushings upgrade


I do need to replace my control arm bushings this year (93 325is) , and while i am at it i figure i might as well take a good look at all the other bushings and subframe reinforcements.

so far i had a eibach pro suspensions kit with front and real roll bars installed

along with

alignement kit

strut mounts front and rear

i had this done at a good autobody shop and aligned.

now i am thinking about adding this, to get rid of the weak bmw bushings and reinforce the subframe before it fails.

powerflex control arms and bushings

trailing arm toe bushings

rear subframe reinforcement kit

rear subframe bushing kit (powerflex)

questions i have:

- will the above be considered a complete subframe/suspension overhaul? did i miss anything? or is it total overkill?

- is powerflex making good product?

- is any or all of this doable in the driveway? (i have pretty much everything but a lift)

sorry for the lengthy post and the haevy linking, but i know how you guys like complete information

thx in advance
