E28 M5 Subframe R&R
I am about to have the subframe dropped from my e28 M5, in order to change the Subframe bushings. I am using this car for street use.

I am hoping to get help with a list of any other components I have access to during this job that should be changed- and hopefully change everythiing I can while its up in the air. I'll also be doing the seals on the Diff at this time, again - any parts I should order/have on hand to change while its up in the air?

Also, I will be doing the upper and lower control arms, and I want to have any parts you guys think I should have on hand to change out while the front suspension is apart.

I already have Bilstiens and H&R's on it - my goal is to get all parts on hand to get everything tightened up for a nice ride.

I would look at the sway bar groomet and end links, the pitman arms (AKA dog bones). Take a look at the diff mount and the shock mounts for tears in the rubber. It never hurts to look at the rubber muffler hangers while you are at it.

Good Luck!
