Engine mounts support and diff bushing

Anyone have a DIY on either of these two? Just got my car back from the dealer and they need both asap. $2500 quote so I'll tackle this myself.

Engine mounts you need a means of being able to support the engine while lowering subframe, if you don’t have a way to do this is may be too costly to buy the tools.

Rear diff bushing you will need to drop your exhaust and lower the differential. There is a very specific tool to remove and install the bushing. Again, if you don’t have the necessary tools it isn’t worth purchasing do use once

I've done engine mounts by raising the engine. I supported the oil pan with a large piece of wood and was able to raise the engine the couple of inches needed to replace the hydraulic mount. I don't know if this will work on a BMW.
