Yes. I believe you would, especially with poly bushings.

Bigest rear is 22mm bigest front is 34mm which came on the Deville . The same one we get the radiators support bars from. The 32mm and 34mm are very heavy. Especially if your carring them through the u-pull with your tools. Normally i take a hand truck but was only looking for small parts.

By the way i have checked many sway bars in JY'* and they are not always the same in each make/model. I've seen low opt cars with bigger sways than models such as Park Ultra. So you need to check. An FE3 Bonne SSEI had a 30mm front. An 89 Bonne LE had a 22mm rear. Well you get the picture. But the caddy'* all had the bigger sways on them.
