When I went to get sway bar bushings.. I was suprised they asked what size.. 22 , 24 , or 26.. How is it that there can be 3 different sizes? is it the length?

annoying isn't it? little things like this made me appreciate the fox5oh, where the most common sway bar upgrade is to toss it in the trash for reduced weight and increased front end rise on launch. LOL


it's diameter. i believe the thickest bar is on the GT. personally i would just buy them all and return the ones you don't use.

would you disconnect the sway bar just to rule it out?

i mean what can it really be.. the bar, the arms, the struts/strut mounts, etc.

Oh! that's a good idea, and just go on a test ride and see if it goes away. I'll do that tomorrow.
