Default Bushings, bushings, bushings

Hello people,

I realize that the control arm bushings are the most widely replaced bushings on the R53.

Besides those bushings, what other bushings really make a difference if replaced with powerflex?

I found this but I don't think I really need to replace every bushing on the car

Well since you should drop the entire subframe, it's a good time to take care of everything now. I did the control arm bushings the steering rack and the sway bar with Powerflex. I also replaced the ball joints that bolt onto the control arms, and the ball joints that bolt onto the carriers. Also replaced the tie rods. Then, it's a good time to check or replace the two lines that go to the power steering tank, if they are leaking, replace them now. And after all this, get yourself a good alignment
