shocks and subframe bushings at once?

99 528i Touring Sport Package

question: Have 125 plus on the clock. The ride is not as it used to be obviously. I was thinking of doing the shocks so my question is should I ask my indy to do the rear subframe bushings as well while everything is torn down? Or are the rear subs something I can do later without much hassle?

thanks

Rear touring subframe bushings are anywhere from $70 - 100 each (x4) = ~ $400
