I recently added Suspension Techniques sways to my car (I already had H&Rs/Bilsteins). The overall ride has stiffened up signifigantly. It is now a little uncomfortable on the street. Yes, it corners pretty flat now, but I think the front camber plates I added at the same time helped the cornering more than the bars. The car sticks like glue now. If you go ahead with the bar upgrade, DEFINITELY reinforce all the mounting points or they WILL break off. This makes the job quite involved (read: expensive) as it isn't just a simple bolt-on anymore, but do it right or don't do it!

A friend of mine said that Racing Dynamic swaybars on my 91 M3 would result a night and day difference when it comes to cornering. My car is used only on streets. I have performed no other suspension modifications. Id like to make the car tighter but am wondering what effect it will have on my daily driving. Will the swaybars make the ride to firm and unbearable over bumps?; or will it just reduce body lean? Any comments on these swaybars pro or con are really appreciated. Thanks alot.

Swaybars due make a huge difference in the cars conering ability. Before you go ahead with this, you should invest in swaybar supports. I went with the ST sways and broke all the pick up points on the car. It easier to due this beofre it breaks.
