Upgraded bushings?

Just found these online. Will it make a noticeable difference? Looks like they may be a PITA to install.

They are on my list once I have some more mod money in the budget. I'll start with subframe and diff. I have not pulled a subframe on one of these cars, but I'll put the car up on the lift for a look and it it makes sense to do more while I am in there so I don't have to pull it again later, I might. I will also have to consider whether some of the rear suspension bushings are better off being rubber than poly. I have found poly rtabs squeak, for example, on my E36M3, and eventually (years later) replaced them with stock rubber bushings and aftermarket movement limiters.

Lots of work as the years and miles build up. I will likely do the rod bearings at some point as well.

I currently have PF's F sway bar and R damper upper mounts.

Their diff bushings weren't out yet when I had my 3.62 diff installed so when I have their R subframe mounts installed, I'll also have the diff bushings installed.

I'm about to install the BimmerWorld F lower control arm bearing, and their adjustable R toe arm set, wishbone set (camber adj), and guiding link set. Finally, in the near future I'm going to add their R control arm bearing kit, and trailing link bearing kit.

I had the Bimmerworld front lower control arm bearings installed a few months ago. I think they made a bit of a difference with the steering. Steering is a little tighter and more precise feeling and you can now feel pretty much everything on the road. I would say that they were worth it.
