that shouldn't happen.. did you do it yourself? did you make sure to put the nut back on after you took it off?

I had a tire shop do it, after it popped off they said that I needed adjustable sway bar links? I'm not quite sure if that sounds right so I'm asking real BMW owners and their experience

you only changed the springs right? stock end links should be fine if you just did springs, if you did shocks as well then you may need adjustable

I have plans of installing a Megan coilover kit on my 09 coupe. While I'm at it, I will be upgrading some of the bushings here and there. I also found these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-E60-E61-...tR8n~M&vxp=mtr.

I have a little sway coming from the rear when I hit an uneven lump in the road. I know the suspension is shot. So, I figure this is a good overall fix.

BTW.... If anyone is having the hard 2-1 downshift, I fixed mine by having BMW perform a FULL FLUSH on the tranny. It has worked wonderfully for the last three months.

Happy with the eibach and Bilsteins lowering. Not too radical and nice on the track. Something like 1.2 front and .9 rear (inches). The real identifier is the exhaust. Take my advice, remove the mufflers. This car sounds so nice when you hear it opened up.

Here's mine using RC coilovers. My intent was to get the rear down. It was too high for me. The ride, as with all single adjustable, you can not get it where you want. Unfortunately, I could not afford $3K for KW V3's.
