BMW E82 Sway Bar Kits

BMW E82 Sway Bar Kits The next step in tuning your car's handling - after shocks/springs and camber plates - should be a set of swaybars. Using larger front and rear sway bars will give your car better/quicker turn-in and less bodyroll in corners. These bars replace the existing sway bars on the car for a clean and simple upgrade with very little downside. Sway bars should be matched with your springs/shocks to maintain a proper handling balance. In some cases only a front or rear bar is needed to positively change the balance and make the car more neutral. We sell sway bar kits from H&R, Racing Dynamics, OE BMW upgrades, and even some of our own designs. Swaybars are sold with new bushings. New links and other hardware are strongly recommended.

H&R Front Sway Bar - E82/E88 1 Series (135i & 128i) 27mm FRONT sway bar / swaybar for 1 series, including 128i and 135i coupe and convertible.

  • Reduces body roll
  • Highest tensile strength available

    H&R Sport Sway Bars are designed for drivers who desire improved handling without lowering or affecting ride quality. H&R Sport Sway Bars increase your suspension’s roll stiffness—or its resistance to roll in turns—while maintaining ride comfort and dramatically increasing cornering control, lateral stability, and grip. A unique feature of H&R Sport Sway Bars are the smooth, machined-like forged ends that, for specific vehicles, allow for adjustability in stiffness—giving you an unmatched level of precision and performance.

    M3 Front Sway Bar Upgrade - E82, E9X The stock E93 M3 front 28mm swaybar can be used on all of the other E90/E92 and E82 cars as a mild upgrade to reduce bodyroll, improve handling, and get quicker turn-in. This is a direct upgrade for all E82/E88/E9X (not xi AWD) when used with the bar, bushings, and hardware.

    stock E90/E92 M3 sway bar size = 26.5mm
    stock E9X non-M3 sway bar size = 26.5-23.0mm
    stock E93 M3 sway bar size = 28-24mm


    The front anti-roll bar is one of the keys to improving handling feel for the E82 and E9X. The larger bar is stiffer, which helps control the front tires and keep them in contact with the road. The front tires will bite harder into the turn, giving you more front grip. You'll see improved turn-in response, less understeer, and less body roll. This is one the best street suspension upgrades you can make for the E82/E9X cars. And there's almost no change in ride comfort or noise. Installation is simple for the front sway bar and takes about one hour. The bushings are a tight compression fit to the bar - remember to use lots of lubricant to get them to snap into place.

    Required parts for installation on non-E93 M3 models:
    2 x 31352283967 - Swaybar bushings (bottom)
    2 x 31352283968 - Swaybar bushings (top)
    2 x 31352283037 - Mounting brackets

    H&R Front Sway Bar - E9X M3 - 27mm
    • 52% stiffer than the factory E90/E92 M3 bar. 42% stiffer than the E93 M3 bar!
    • 27mm straight across (not a tapered center like the E93 M3 factory bar)
    • Solid core, not hollow like the stock bars (better at resisting twist)
    • Forged, non-adjustable steel ends
    • Highest tensile steel strength available

    The H&R for the E9X M3 is the best anti-roll bar option for the E9X M3. Don't be let down by the "small" size compared to the factory sway bar sizes - there are some big differences! We've had our in-house suspension engineers run the math and the H&R swaybar is over 52% stiffer than the factory E90/E92 M3 bar and even over 42% stiffer than the E93 M3 sway bar upgrade. There are several reasons for this - the stock sway bars are hollow (for lighter weight) and will twist more than the solid H&R bar. Also, the E93 M3 bar is often called a 28mm bar but it actually tapers down in the center to 24mm which greatly reduces its effectiveness. So if you're looking for a serious sway bar upgrade, the H&R is clearly the way to go. Note: to maintain the handling balance of the car, we recommend only using the front bar with the matching H&R rear bar or heavily revised racing suspension.

    This bar re-uses the factory M3 sway bar bushings and brackets.

    E82/E9X ECS Tuning 28mm Performance Front Sway Bar

    E82/E9X 28mm front sway bar with urethane bushings.

    Sway bars are typically sold as a front and rear set to balance the handling. But a front sway bar only can also have excellent benefits, especially on a street car. Going with a larger front bar will improve steering and handling even at low-moderate speeds. Steering turn-in is faster and gives the car a more direct and responsive feel. Cars with staggered wheel fitments (a narrower front wheel compared to the rear) will especially benefit from this and help the front tire 'bite' into the road. 

    ECS has specified a 28mm sway bar that has been fine-tuned for use on the E9X and E82 models. Urethane bushings with a reinforced inner core that requires no lubrication are included. 

    This item fits the following BMWs: 
    2008-2013 E82 E88 BMW 128i 135i 1M Coupe
    2006-2011 E90 BMW 325i 328i 330i 335d 335i M3 - Sedan

    E82 128i/135i Sport Rear 12mm Sway Bar This is the factory sport package rear sway bar as used on the E82 128i Sport and 135i Sport. It's a 12mm diameter which is perfect for a mild suspension upgrade, especially when using factory or mild aftermarket springs. The base 128i did not come with any rear sway bar which makes this a big upgrade (requires mounting kit, see below). The 135i had a stock 11mm rear sway bar so the effect will be less dramatic.

    On the 128i models that did not have a sport package, BMW did not install a rear sway bar. Adding one will make the car feel 'snappier' with more rear end drifting. It will be easier to get into an oversteer situation which makes this upgrade suitable for autocross or other tight cornering environments. If you are upgrading from no rear bar you will need the brackets, rear links, and hardware. We have packaged these pieces together in a kit for you - add it to your order from the options below.

    This sway bar is sold as the bar only. Bushings should be ordered separately, see below.
