Ye ole search button is right at the top ...over to the right a little bit. Sorry those specs I don't have off the top of my head. Search it up and you'll find a lot of detail.

I believe its a 32mm solid bar.

Put one on my LeSabre. Huge difference, especially over FE1.
But be warned, the stock endlinks may not like you for it. The bar snapped mine like twigs, so you might want to invest in some quality beefy end links. I bought Moog'* links specific for this bar, and they are working great.

FE5 is just another GM RPO. It can be had on any number of cars, it isn't specific to the model.
GXP happened to get FE5. It is a Bonneville.

...and I have a sneaky suspicion why FE5 parts on Morad are hard to come by in the last couple days lmao.
