RTAB bushings etc...

ok, so I am not a mechanically inclined guy and I need to replace some bushings on my 98 M3/4/5. My question is what bushings do I need? I see a couple different ones, should I replace upper and lower?
I have already purchased the trailing arm mount bushings but I see more listed in the parts section. I apologize for my stupidity but any help with a lack of the usual helping of flaming would be appreciated. I frequent m3forum a lot and I know I would be destroyed asking this question there.

I would like to get as many bushings replaced as possible since the car will be down anyway.
Thanks in advance.

Well what parts you need depends on what your doing with te car. If your tracking t you would want different bushings then street use. Depending on how firm you want the ride to be.

If you want it back to OEM specs then I recommend just going with OEM ones. They lasted this long so a new set should last just as long.
