I'm not quite certain what the proper English term is, but hopefully you know what part I mean. I want to improve my autoslalom (autocross) performance for next year, and to do this I thought about replacing the front stabilizing rod with a fatter one.

Rik (from the US, his website at www.2phast.com) did this to his 190E 2.6, and in fact he installed a rod from an E60AMG - depending on price difference between this and the one from the 500s, I think I will go for the E500 one, which is about 100€ in Germany.

But; I would like to know if anyone here knows the diameter of a stock 190D rod? The W124s use the same rods for all six-cylinder models, so I'm guessing they use the same ones on all 190 four-cylinder models as well.. Has anyone here done this upgrade on their car?

E500 rod:
