Question Where should i order a front swaybar from?

As you bonnevilleforum.com members know, My girlfriends father has been putting alot of time, money and care into my 1992 Bonneville SE. And i just got a call from her parents telling me that my front sway/stabilizer bar is broke.

Where is the cheapest place to get a replacement?

A quick search through my usual parts places yield no results. Probably the best place to get them would be the junkyard.

Moved to General for better visibility.

Looking for a new one. I believe i found a few at GMPartsDirect.com. 30mm solid, 32mm solid and 32mm tubular. but it says "all models". so im a little concerned.

A lot of platforms share the same parts. Olds, Buicks and Bonnevilles share pretty much everything.
