    Front sway bar mounting bracket

    Does the 30mm stock front sway bar use the same size mounting bracket as the 1LE/WS6 32mm front sway bar?

    I know the bushing will be a different size, 30mm vs. 32mm. I wasn't sure if the bracket that mounts the sway bar to the front is a different size.


    thanks

    My guess is that the brackets are identical. If no one else posts up, I would be more than happy to get you a measurement.

    thanks. I have the stock 30mm. I didn't know if the brackets were the same and they made the wall of the bushing thinner or what.

    I used my stock 30mm brackets with my 35mm Strano swaybar so you should be good with new bushings to match you 32mm bar.

    Thanks. It sounds like the bushing gets thinner as the bar gets thicker. I know it seemed like a silly question. In my head I said they must be the same. There is only one bolt location. But fabrication is always a part of building up a car, and I thought it was important to know ahead of time.

    I wish I had the spare cash for those Strano sway bars. One day, I can always work to save money.

    thanks.
