That looks like a rear bar bracket. The front one has a much larger bushing and less metal. It uses the stock sway bar bracket bolt and the rear subframe bolt. This is what my front bar looks like:

Thanks for that picture, that's what my stock bar looks like too to fit under the bellhousing. Your endlink brackets are also stock-style.

I emailed IE, I'm pretty sure they sent me the wrong bar. Looks like IE sends wrong products a fair bit after a quick search :s

Heard back from IE, he told me that the swaybar is correct and it is indeed designed using non-stock mounting points which place the whole bar further foreword.

I got these pictures for reference










Also, am I being an idiot or does under my car not look like whats pictured....I'm having a hard time picturing it without being under the car

I think that's an E21. Did you tell them to send you a bar for an E30 or an 84 3 series? I think the E21 was here up to 84.

Either way, if that indeed is designed to go on an E30 somehow, replace the bolts. I see 8.8. Those are subframe anchor bolts, get 12.9s

Man I was thinking the same thing -- the initial order email along with the conversation we had said e30...

You mean replace the bolts that came in their kit eh?

Well Rudy wins the prize, he sent me pictures of an 02, found one of the pictures on

http://www.iemotorsport.com/bmw/2002...ng/02hb01.html

Confirmed my order, the email I got when I ordered is indeed the e30 bar

Will have to call them tomorrow. Frustrating.

Differential / Halfshafts Installed

So to cure my diff problems, I let RMP handle it. Awesome results. I was made a little harness for my speed sensor so I can use the better-condition e36 sensor and not have to do any cutting.

The diff and halfshafts were also cleaned up significantly, they look awesome!





So I stayed up til 3 last night and mounted everything with loctite, and re-checked the torque on the RTABs along with impacting the axle nuts on. I compressed and installed the springs after a quick cleaning off as well so now the absolute only thing to do in the back is the struts and brake bleeding.






I am trying to find the set of rear Konis I had lying around -- if I can't then I may have to re use the KYBs and deal with front and rear struts later on.

If everything goes well the motor should be out tomorrow! I have some help coming by, the motor is completely detached and the cherry picker is standing ready. I don't think I will have any issues hooking it up the crane looks like a beast compared to the tiny m10.

Will update on how we make out
