My Ride: 2002 330Ci Sport
Front Sway Bar End Links - Sport vs Standard suspension...

Hey all,

I need to replace my Front Sway Bar End Links and as I was looking on ECSTuning, I see they sell OEM:
http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-330...ink/ES1843949/

As well as a "shorter" set:
http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-330...Link/ES261698/

I have a 2002 330Ci (sport suspension)... Which one should I get? Does the Sport Suspension necessitate shorter end links, or do I still use the OEM (read: longer) ones?

Thanks in advance!
J

You shouldn't need a shorter end link unless your car is lowered. Even then it isn't an absolute must.
