installing sway bars on an e93?

how impossible is it?

My friend and I did a set on a S4 but I've heard that for e92/e93s it's reallly tight and almost impossible to do without a lift and professional installation...


any one have any insight/experience on this?

front is easy.
Rear is labor intensive.

Yeah, dropping the rear subframe should be left to the pros...unless you're a pro yourself.

I had it done last week (and saw it being done). 3 hours is a bit too much, but as at least 2 people are busy with it, 2 hours for sure.
don't know why BMW made it like this... there is space enough below.
