What aftermarket sways do you have on your vert??
Trying to get a thread with a listing of aftermarket sways that will fit and work best on a non-M vert.

I am getting ready to add aftermarket sways to my 2002 330 convertible and getting info for verts is difficult. Please post your info to help those researching mods.

I have read Hotchkis sways will not fit on the rear of our cars (verts have additional bracing in th rear). The non-M convertibles have thicker stock sway bars than coupes, especially in the rear (24 mm front, 20 mm rear), so some (HR/TMS) are only 1 mm thicker in the rear. Some say UUC fit but others said they had difficulties (gen 1 vs. gen2?).

Please list what brand you have installed on your vert and what firmness settings you used (i.e., which holes your end links are attached to). Also give your impression of ease of fitment (any problems with intallation, did you need adjustable endlinks), how significant was handling improvement over stock, need for maintenance, etc.

Turner Motorsport front and back....

Forget the settings on the rear but I believe I went with what the suggested.

Using just jack stands, the rear was a pain to put in. Drop the exhaust near the muffler, it will be much easier

Not sure about the back. Car supposedly has Dinan stage 2 suspension. Dinan site lists it as being only for coupes.
The front sway def is not a stock piece tho. That's for sure.
Didn't measure it but it was blue in color and looked nice and beefy
