Rear Bushing Kit Sizes?

I'm looking to do my entire rear suspension including all bushings (ie. upper and lower control arms, RTAB, and subframe). I see there is a specific BMW kit for this work, but they are very expensive. I assume any bushing press kit will work...unless BMW is special? If it is possible to use any bushing press kit, does anyone know the sizes I will need to complete the work?

Here you go:

Rear Suspension Refresh Kit - Level 2
BMW E46 330Ci M54 3.0L*
Kit for a more complete rear suspension rebuild using OEM components
Level 2 rear suspension refresh kit addresses failure of the rear subframe bushings, rear trailing arm bushings, and rear control arm bushings.
Symptoms include a loose feel in the rear end under hard acceleration, as well as side to side wandering of the rear end between shifts under hard acceleration. Other symptoms include clunking over bumps, severe vibration at speed, and excessive tramlining. If your vehicle is receiving a subframe mount reinforcement installation, this is the ideal bushing kit to complement the work.
