if you are going to replace your sway bars you should also pick up a set of Beast Power Motorsports aluminium sway bar brackets, they are much stronger than OEM brackets

Why are the ACS sways more than double the eibach ones?
would you suggest the eibach over oem m5?
and are thsoe brackets absolutely necessary? or can i get away with oem?

I would go with either the OEM M5 one or the adjsutable Dinan one.

OEM: 33-55-2-229-136 ~ $160CDN

I would suggest replacing the sway bar brackets, the stock one are very thin metal, if it starts to corrod & they will, the bracket will break

M5 front
OEM 27mm

540 front
OEM non-sport 24.5mm
OEM sport and sport II 25mm
Dinan 27mm

525/530 front
OEM non-sport 22.5mm
OEM "for vehicles with payload increase" 23mm
OEM sport 24mm
OEM sport II 25mm
Dinan 25mm

M5 rear
OEM 16.5mm
Dinan 17mm adjustable length

540 rear
OEM non-sport 14 mm
OEM sport and sport II 15mm
Dinan 17mm adjustable length

525/530 rear
OEM non-sport 13mm
OEM sport 14mm
OEM sport II 15 mm
Dinan 17mm adjustable length

The only difference between these and Eibach is I think Eibach has an 18mm rear.
