    I think I need bigger rubbers

    Some aftermarket manufacturers go by specs of the original, but vary with their own designs. Like body panels. Aftermarket panels might be slightly different. Gaps could be tighter or looser than the original panel.

    Front sway bar on our cars is hollow, not solid. It is also fairly light weight. I removed mine a few years back just to take another few pounds off the front end. Even street driving it I have never really noticed a difference in the handling or feel.

    What condition were the bushings in? If the bushings werenít working to create tension, the bar isnít doing most, if any, of what it is supposed to do.

    OP, how did you measure the bar? It wouldnít take much to miss a millimeter.

    I have replaced my front center link bushings with OEM, and it was a proper fit; and I donít remember mention of a 35mm front offered, of course I think the parts guides were in standard, not metric.

    Itís been more than 15 years sinc I worked at a GM dealer too.
