PU Vs Stock Trailing Arms

ok so its time to start replacing bushings on the 330. 145k miles. The fronts are all done. Now im starting to work on rear.

So for trailing arm bushings should i be using PU or stock rubber? i drive the car hard but i dont want much more highway noise.

My 318 has PU subframe bushings, which are amazing, but i can here the dif whinning..i dont want that in my 330. (i want it to still be a daily driver not a weekend driver).
so has anyone changed these things out with PU yet? how much louder is it?

also i plan on doing the install myself, i know PU is easier to install, and for stock i need a press to install them right?
