Default sway bar

I went to the auto parts store to buy some bushings for my sway bar. The guy wanted to know what size it is. What do I tell him? (1993 SE SLE)

Measure it in MM. Then tell him what you measured.

Your trim level doesn't mean much. My SLE has FE2 suspension and the larger bars. Yours probably doesn't. But yu should measure.

How do I measure it? Around, across...?

And do what wjcollier was going to tell you to do above. Check your RPO tag for FE1 or FE2. But measure also. Stranger things have happened.

32mm is the biggest front sway possible... Did you wipe the gunk off it? What are you using to measure?
