Moog problem solver vs Myele HD antiroll support bars

I had moog bars but they only lasted a few trips and the boots ripped. Figured moog had design flaw.
Decided to replace them with Myele HD, thought they were better than lemforder.

Loos like myele HD are a lot thinner.
Also on moog bars I had to use 18mm wrench at the back to prevent it from spinning when loosening the screw.
On myele bars it's 16mm.
Anyone used either moog or myele?
I'm kinda disappointed myele are not as thick

Also wondering what's the utility of washer #9

I figure it goes on the inner side of the antiroll bar.
I didn't have 12mm diameter, 1.5mm thickness oem washers, so instead I used 11mm diameter and 2mm thickness.
I wonder what's the point of this washer and why it's only used on the upper side of the bar and not at the lower side.

I totally stopped trying different brands. I’m using lemforder for all oem replacement parts on the x5. No more boots tearing and such and I abuse the parts pretty heavily.

As Lucas said, Iíve started buying mostly Lemforder. Bought some Meyle HD control arms and the ball joint on the passenger side was toast after just a few thousand miles. Also had bad luck with their brake rotors on my Z3.

I've had good experiences with Meyle HD swaybar endlinks on many cars. The balljoints stay tight long term, which makes R&R super easy. The lemfoerder endlinks are usually really annoying to R&R.

I mostly stick to Lemfoerder or TRW, whichever is OE, otherwise.

Thickness of the swaybar endlink shouldn't matter that much. As long as they don't bend, they're thick enough.

Hopefully they last a few years.
I'll let you guys know if they break soon.
Price wise they cost the same as lemforder, I just heard lemforder is not what it used to be.
