My # 9's need to be replaced so I thought I would go ahead and replace all rear subframe bushings while I am in there. Can someone verify this parts list?

RealOEM.com   BMW E39 M5 REAR AXLE CARRIER

Qty. 1 of #6 - Part number 33171090389
Qty. 2 of #9 - Part number 33171093008
Qty. 4 (or is it just 2) of #2 - Part number 33311091422

Is that all of them? Do the bolts also need to be replaced?

You need Quantity 4 of #2.

I suggest at least replacing nuts #8 and #11(x2)

Being in Tennessee you shouldn't have much issue with rust? I had trouble getting out bolt #13 without feeling like they were about to snap, so I ordered new ones. Also the 4 bolts on the other end of those rods that support the exhaust plate. I snapped 2 of those in the body. The new ones, which are part #8 in the exhaust diagram, are too short. Not sure if BMW screwed up the listing or the dealer. I found 4 stainless steel bolts in my inventory that were a perfect replacement.

You're definitely approaching the job the right way. It's WAY easier to do the differential mount bushings with the subframe on the ground. I did mine in the car as I wasn't planning to replace my subframe bushings. I have almost 200k on the car and they visually look OK, but I can't say for sure that the rubber isn't a little degraded and just not split yet.
