Subject: [E36M3] Anti-roll bar diameters
Here's information I've collected on BMW and aftermarket anti-roll bars. I
hope it helps you plan your upgrade (including upgrading an E36 325i/328i
to M3 specs).
D I A M E T E R Adjustable (Y/N)
E36 328i (base) 24 mm 15 mm No
95 E36 M3 23 mm 20 mm No
M-Technic 25.5 mm 18 mm No
RD Sport 27 mm 22 mm Yes
Korman 27 mm 22 mm Yes
Eibach 26 mm 24 mm ??
Dinan 22 mm 21 mm Yes
Thanks to Brian and Nat at Bavarian Professionals of Berkeley for helping
me pull the information on BMW anti-roll bars. Information on aftermarket
anti-roll bars came from previous posts to the BMW digest. Who would have
expected the M3 to have a smaller front bar than a 328i??!!
If anyone has info on the 96-99 M3 suspension and the optional E36
325i/328i Sport package (is that the M-Technic?), let me know and I'll
repost the table above.

nice list, jay.
however, if the *biggest* is what you're after, there may be a solution that
is offered...by BMW.
i've spoke to jason _at_ zionsville autosport and another 330ti owner that they
do indeed have the stock 318ti front sway bars with their 6-cylinder motors
in place. most people know that the ti bars bolt to the control arm (where
M3 bars bolt to the strut).
we're installing the 3.2L M3 motor into the 318ti this weekend and one of
the items we're addressing is the front sway bar. by using stock M3 sway
bar links in conjunction with an M3 compatible strut, we can connect the
28mm 318ti bar just like the M3 bar. however, we've not go the BIGGEST bar
will keep you updated on the results.
