Lowering subframe to do bushings. What else should i do?

Hi Guys,

2012 135i DCT with bolt ons/JB4.

I have a local indy shop lowering my rear subframe to put in M3 bushings.

Not a cheap job and would prefer not to pay for it again, so just wondering what else i should have done while they are in there?

I am having them put in new stainless brake lines at the same time.

I think i will get them to replace the diff bushings but not sure what else??

I can't give any advice but you should move this to the 1 Series general or suspension forum.

rear sway bar bushings may be a good idea.

There is nothing else you need.

Upgrade the rear bar will only take traction away from the car when cornering.
