What does everyone think about getting anti-roll bars and a front strut brace for a 1995, E320, W124? I found that Eibach makes an anti-roll bar kit, with prices of $446, $499, and $595, depending on the vendor. Of course there are also the "Sportline" bars from the dealer and maybe the E420 bars are bigger than my E320 bars. The Eibachs are 28mm Front and 17mm Rear. I don’t know the diameter of the stock E320 bars or the Sportline bars. Are those Eibachs too big? I saw a post for a CLK, I think it was, and the mounting hardware was ripped right off of his car from using the massive bars. Can the E320 mounting hardware endure the big bars? In addition, I think the Eibachs may come with polyurethane bushings that may require more attention to lubrication and I suppose they don’t flex, so that could add more stress to the stock hardware.

Now what about the struts? So far, I found that Wiechers and Sparko make a strut brace for the W124. Only Wiechers specified the year for the W124, so I am a little unsure about the Sparko. I am not sure if all the W124s were the same at the top of the struts. In the 1995, it is not a straight line from strut-top to strut-top, because the firewall is in the way. I am not planning to cut the firewall, so I hope that the Wiechers brace has a bend of some kind to accommodate this. I will have to find out more about the Sparko.

So what do you know about anti-roll bars and strut braces? Please help me. Last time, when I purchased Eibach springs and Bilstein shocks, I found out after they were installed that I needed the K-MAC bushings to fix the rear camber. This time I would like to know more before I buy the stuff. Thanks for your guidance.
