Default 17mm or 21mm sway? ( also bushing part # ) *Rear*

Ok i was looking on GMPD for the rear inner Bushings for my new FE2 sway
and....

They have a 17mm one listed and a 21mm one.

Now i though there was only a 10mm (FE1) and a 18mm (FE2)

17mm: Std Susp Bar, Stabilizer 25559835
21mm: Sport Susp Bar, Stabilizer 25559836

any ideas whats going on here

also if someoen has the part # for the rear bushings that would be Great

Okay... your front is F41 too.


GMPD often "loses" parts and clumps them all together. No point in stocking 47 different sway bars for a fifteen year old grandpa car.

Dame....F41 and FE2 share the same sway bar the only differences are the spring rates to make the different suspension

17mm and 21mm are accurate for the sizes of the sway bar

I know this. I was one of the very first to swap these parts, You seem to have forgotten that. I also put a lot of track time into my testing and base my opinions on these swaps on that, Not just some book and some spirited driving around. In case you're wondering, You have infact pissed me off.
