Rear trail arm bushings

I think my rear trail arm (or toe whatever they're called) bushings are going out....my rear squeaks really bad and feels loose going around corners whereas my front feels stable. When I took my car to get serviced when I bought it a year ago, the mechanic told me that the rear toe bushings were starting to seperate so it appears like its time to replace these.

Im thinking of just going with 96+ M3 bushings because thats what Bavauto recommends and I don't track the car so I don't see a reason to go to urethane especially because I hear they're loud. Anyone have any opinions? Will I have to buy anything else besides the bushings? A shop will probably be doing this work so how long in labor am I looking at?
