    In a word, yes

    I have just done my E36 328i touring with 165k miles on the clock. My suspension was very tired and on my previous Golf GTI 16v I found that changing the bushes had a much more positive effect than changing the shock absorbers. I did the front trailing arm on the lollipop bushes with Powerflex, rear trailing arm bush with 'Problem Solving Bushes', front anti roll bar bushes with Floflex and soon to do the rears and both sets of drop links.
    I've also replaced the rear shocks and springs from ebay, new gas rears (no brand) and a GSF lowering spring kit I picked up for a tenner on ebay too.

    Much better drive and also a feels more stable at speed, but what it has shown up though is that the diff mounts will need to be done in the coming months.

    Yep, I've used Floflex and Problem Solving Bushes.
    Search on eBay
