Subframe / bushings upgrade

hello,

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 http://www.tirerack.com/suspension/s...ded+Align.+Kit

strut mounts front and rear http://www.tirerack.com/suspension/s...255&perfCode=P

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.

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
