Yes, it makes perfect sense to me. I'd suggest a set of adjustable
bars so you can experiment and get the balance you want. Even though
a bigger rear bar is all that's needed to reduce understeer, adjustable
front and rear bars give more potential car balance combinations.
Eurasian Auto has two E34 sway bar sets advertised in the January '96
E34 M5 Eibach 26mm/19mm $320
E34 535i Susp Tech 27mm/19mm $300
Sure sounds like both Eibach and Suspension Techniques think E34s work
best with about 26/27mm front and 19mm rear bars. You may want to
check some other companies, like Dinan.
