OEM M3 rear trailing arm bushings with limiters are a good upgrade, at least that's what I hear from every one. I've got a set of them ready to go on the 325i soon....

I agree with you TrippinBimmer. I'll go edit the sale post because it doesn't make sense having them under the reinforcement plate.

I hope you're cutting and bending everything yourself or having a friend do it for a low cost. If not, you might want to just buy the $150 kit.

I've heard of many using 2008 Impala SS endlinks. I've also heard the e36 M3 enlinks are a good length too. Do a search on those two.
