Hi all,
just upgraded my sway bars and am looking at selling my standard set. 22mm rear and looks like 25/26mm front, i'll get an exact measurement with some verniers as I thought the front should have been 27mm.
PM me if your interested.
Thanks.

Whiteline, 30mm front, 24mm rear, $180 each bar with the bushes, so parts totalled $360, then paid $100 labour to fit.
In terms of dollars best mod I did, makes a huge difference.

It'd probably be the same as standard EL XR6. Sway bars will fit either 6 or 8, whether it be stocko or aftermarket

how much for the rear one only? The XR8 one

I'm quite certain they will fit any EF/EL.
Going with thicker bars stops the "body roll" and front end "dipping" when you go around corners and roundabouts for example.
Imroves handling even further after putting in low sitting springs shocks.
If you had ramps, or the slim chance you have a hoist at home, then yes they're easy to fit.
