Does anyone know where I can get EIBACH front & rear sway bars?
It appears as though the ACS sway bars are in fact EIBACH sway bars, simply renamed with the ACS brand name. If this is the case, then I'd prefer to get the EIBACH sway bars, in order to save a considerable amount of cash, almost double the price for ACS???
Where can I find the best deal (Lowest Price) for the EIBACH front and rear sway bars? Can anyone provide a web site address/link or telephone number of the business that sells this item at a good price? Thank you very much for yur assistance.
In case there was any doubt in your mind. I posted this pic of my Genuine ACS Bars. The Box had ACS on it 5 million times.
It does actually have ACS on it as well, but I forgot my camera at install. So I have to find where it is to snap a pic of it as well. But I'm not that energetic at the moment to be crawling around under the car.
You can call Sam at Rennsport 310/235-2015. I believe Technik (spelling?) swaybars are, in fact, Eibach for approx. 50% off the price of AC Schnitzer bars. I just ordered them today and will provide a report after Thursday when they will be installed!
Can you please tell us how many hours it took the BMW technician to work on the front sway bar installation?
Im trying to figure out how many billable hpours it will be, when the tech installs the rear and front sway bars.
Is it less than 8 hours, more ??
PS Is there anything important you learned or discovered while the sway bars were being installed, that I should convey to my technician, when he does my car? Thanks again!
Thanks Rob. Please see if Eibach has sway bars for the M5. I contacted Eibach and they said they do not have sway bars for the M5 car. I then told them I was aware that they made sway bars for ACS and Racing Dynamics. The guy at Eibach said yes, we do make the sway bars for the two mentioned companies, but Eibach doesn't sell the sway bars under the Eibach name for some strange reason. WHY????
Eibach has sway bars for the BMW 540i. Would this be the same for our M5 cars? I just can't see paying $800.00 plus dollars for ACS sways when Eibach sway bars are hlaf price of the ACS sway bars and they are the same material, quality and same item!
When I informed the Eibach rep. that the ACs sway bars were approx. $800.00 he was shocked!!! He agreed with me, when I stated that ACS must be "jacking up the price" to double the actual cost. His remark was, "yea more or less, ACS's price is double what Eibach would charge". I said, "what's up with that?", He said, "who knows, its whatever the market bears, and If the customer is willing to pay crazy prices then, why not!"
Sent you a PM. I need to know how many billable hours the BMW technician will charge to install the front and rear sway bars. Please let me know. Thank you.
PS If I have to pay 800 dollars for the sway bars, Im going to freeak out and have a heart attack!
I think the real question here is, does it make sense to lift the motor to remove an M5 factory 27mm bar just to install an Eibach or ACS 28mm bar? It seems to make more sense on a 540i sport with it's 25mm factory bar.

I think a really good technician can get the front swaybar out without dropping the subframe.... I was quoted a 5 hour job for the front, which includes dropping the subframe.. but when they did it, one of the master techs at my dealership spent only about an hour 'coz he's done it before and was more experienced with it....
