Mein Auto: E39 Touring
Got tools?

I'm also in the midst of fighting these 32MPH & 65-70MPH crazy vibrations from the rear end (also coupled with a running on/non dampening vibration when you run over a bump in the rear). Pretty much concluded that these rear subframe mounts (most people are calling them bushings, but technically, they're mounts) are the culprits.

I have an auto repair shop here in Ft. Lauderdale and while we don't specialize in German autos, we do our fair share. I was a little disheartened when we didn't have the special tool required to remove and install these mounts. I called 3 of our German auto tech shops that we're friendly with and I felt much better knowing that they don't have this outrageously priced tool either! Anyway, after we're done doing my mounts (which I'm also, like a few of my other E39 brothers in arms did herein, replacing with the great Lemforders PN: 33 31 1 094 036) I'll have this fantastic tool available for sale/rent.

BTW, the BMW tool kit PN is: 83 30 0 492 407

Keep me in mind if you or anyone you know will need it
