I'm pretty sure it's the same width and it's only the M3 rim offset that is the difference between the non-M and M rear axles

Yes I'm running the complete rear axle.

Pretty much all the info I found when I was planning this stated the distance from Hub to Hub is the same on the e46 non-M and e46 M3 rear axles.

The front axles are definitively a different width.

OK, so a very knowledgeable e46 fanatic provided me this picture, so according to it, if this is measured from the hub the M3 is more wide.

I do not know for certain this is legit specs





Thanks Stu...


edit,
according to the OP this is not valid and the rear axles are the same diameter from non-M to M.

Hey Shane... would the UUC Sway Barbarians fit my E46 or are they different between coupes and sedans? Do you have pics that you can post here?

Cool... so are you selling both the front and rear set or just the front or just the rear? Also would I need to purchase the swaybar bushings from UUC or could I use the existing OEM swaybar bushings I have now?

If Navin doesn't take the sways, I'm in. Can Paypal or just pay in person, your choice.

Thanks Shane. I'm definitely interested in purchasing this from you.

How long have you owned these sway bars and once I have these installed, how long before I'd have to replace the bushings given that these are used?

Also, were you able to notice any difference with these swaybars versus the OEM ones? If so then what specifically did you notice in terms of improvement if any?

Thanks,
Navin

Navin,

Go on uuc's site and read up on these. It doesn't seem like you have a good understanding of what these are.

What did I say that gave you that impression? I'm not an idiot and certainly know what sway bars are. I was simply asking for your feedback on how you liked these sway bars and more importantly how long you've owned them.

I've already been on UUC's site by the way... thanks.

Are you ok, Shane? You don't seem like your normal friendly self.

Tightens the car, bushings are polyurethane so they have a longer lifespan than the OEM rubber ones.

Of course there is a huge difference.. Car stays flat. Compared to your own ones which are smaller than the zhp ones it will be a huge difference.

How long have you owned these swaybars (approximate # of miles with these swaybars installed?)
