    swaybar rebuild

    I want to buy all new bushings/endlinks for my 98 trans am(non ws6) what size is the front(30 i think) and what size is the rear sway bars?

    Will the front endlinks work on the rear endlinks?

    Summit racing has everything you need. I'm in the process of doing the came thing. You will need to order a 2 3/8" end link set for the front swaybar.

    Prior to buying bushings for your front you might want to pick up a 'WS6' 32mm bar.

    They can be purchased from ebay (new/stiffer/hollow/lighter) for $20

    I just re built mine. The endlink bushings were pretty shot. I like the outcome. It leveled out the car in turns a noticeable amount. About perfect for my daily driver.

    I dont know anything about the front sway bars,
    but the ones for the rear, when I was looking for some I saw them a little bit bigger like 32mm. Why do you say 19?

    The front on the Z28's are 30mm and rears are 19mm. Just the way it is. Aftermarket units are easy to come by maybe that's what you have.

    The front 1LE swaybars (WS6 & SS) are 32mm. For the rear there is a wider selection of sizes: 21mm, 22mm, 24mm, 25mm or 1" (25.4mm).
