I got the Quaife from you recently. Getting the BMW Performance Suspension, including th perf. springs soon, and I may have enough left in the wallet for just the M3 guide rods for now. I saw in another post you mentioned how you just unbolt these and put the new ones in. In the Bentley manual it talks about having to losen the stabilizer links and rotate the sway bar upwards to get room to work. Just want to confirm it can be done without that step?

I wold say after the wheels are removed...no more than 10-15 minutes per side, maybe less if you are quick! No need to align the vehicle after replacement.
