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

Paul you are going to love this site, you can thank me later

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.
