To the OP, did you have the sport package to begin with? Does the sport package come with stiffer sway bars than the standard setup?

I do have the sport package, I don't think it came stiffer.
I think that they all have the same dia. specs, but I could be wrong.

install question?

how did you lower the front subframe? was it partially lowered or completely unbolted? did you have to take off the steel pan?

There are 6 bolts holding the subframe and I removed them all supporting the subframe and lowering it slowly at the point where I had enough room to wiggle the sway bar out.

Another 6 holding the reinforcement plate. I just took out the front 4 bolts and just loosened the other 2.

Yes, front sway bars are the same but the sport has a 23.5mm rear bar compared to the stock 22mm.

@dpgx5: I am considering installing the eibach kit on my 05 4.4 sport X5. Now that you've had these installed for a while what are your current impressions? How did it change normal daily driving? Aggressive driving? etc... It seems like this is a fairly inexpensive mod that will have a big impact on handling. Thanks!!

Well I am impressed with the way you don't feel the body roll, it is more stable in turns and just in general with the road. I also have 20's on so I can compare to the 19's. Nothing really changed just that you now went from normal driving to want to drive aggressive lol jk. The X feels more planted, you wouldn't be disappointed!
