The swaybar on the front of my ef is 27mm, so the 22mm nolathane d bushes i got wont fit.
Apparently there are two common sizes of bushes 18 and 22mm.
The swaybar links are also fatter,12 mm and the bushes i got for them are,10mm and too small also.
The swaybar is black like a stocky but im not sure if its stock or not.Any ideas.
The reason i ask is because the parts were purchased from a store that sometimes gives me wrong information about the parts i get.

If its not stock the front could be from an XR6.
22mm bushes sound like they belong on the rear one cause the rear swaybar is 22mm stock. Although I am pretty sure the fronts are 27mm.

WA Suspension Centre would be able to help you out, Osbourne Park. I reckon they are the best. I've had 4 EF/ELs done there and they haven't done me wrong.

Also I just did a quick search and there is 6 pages of threads on swaybars.

The front swaybar is 27mm and an XH heavy duty is 28mm, which fits on too. The rear swaybar is 22mm, and the AU ones ( non-IRS ) are 23mm and are hollow tube, unlike the solid ones on previous models.
