BMW E39 540

BMW e39 swap of swaybar (2)

lift up the engine drop the subframe, and pry the fucker out of the alignment pins, was told it “might work” without doing that, but would have saved us atleast 1 hour of work and a lot of cursewors doing that straight away.

it is less prone to understeer, because you loose the positive camber on the outside wheel when the car rolls, seems more stable, and a tad stiffer on uneven bumps.

this is the guide we followed,
