1M adjustable swaybar endlink recommendations?

hey guys, was wondering if any of you have been running an adjustable suspension setup? i currently have an ohlins setup with GC camber plates and GC ride hight kits for front/rear. i want to keep close to stock for road, but i wouldn't mind getting lower for track. does anyone have the stock endlink sizes and recommendations on adjustable endlinks manufactures? any good/bad experiences?

thanks!

EDIT: sorry, stock sizes for 1M front/rear driver/passenger sides. also, would i need to go longer or shorter in order to drop? i've never really changed out endlinks for adjustable ones before. just replaced stock for stock on an STi once, so this is new to me. i looked at turner...they have various sizes etc. are there others that i should consider as well?

sorry for the bump, but does anyone know the stock front/read sizes for the swaybar endlinks? i can't seem to find them in a search. that would at least help me get started though...looking at ground control. does anyone have thoughts on them?

I tried a set from Bimmerworld that I did not like. They started making creaking noises shortly after installation.

I've been very happy with the Turner Motorsport adjustable links I switched to. Nice and quiet.

BTW, The GC link ends look very similar to the Bimmerworld ones.

IIRC, the Turner pieces are modified stock units. In addition to being quieter, they require less maintenance.

Thanks Neil. This being my first BMW (I've tracked several other cars), excuse my dumb question: IIRC is just BMW manufacturing, right? So you're recommending the Turner endlinks? Are you using them?

And for anyone else, I finally received some good numbers for endlink sizing (in case anyone else doing a search wants to know):

Stock Sizing
Front -
Hole to Hole: 330mm (12.9921" or 33cm)
End to End: 365mm (14.3701" or 36.5cm)
Shaft: 300mm (11.811 or 30cm)
Bolts: M10 upper / M10 lower / Standard

Rear -
Hole to Hole: 165mm (6.49606" or 16.5cm)
End to End: 190mm (7.48031" or 19.0cm)
Shaft: 135mm (5.31496" or 13.5cm)
Bolts: M10 upper / M8 lower / 23mm (w/bushing)
