a number of different size rear sway bars in this vehicle.

is most commonly done one of two ways.
- 1 - Wrench method.
This is quite simple - just take a set of wrenches and see
which one fits over the bar correctly. For example - if

have an 18mm sway bar! Not all of us are lucky enough to
be able to us this method as there are at times mid-sizes
like 23.5mm etc. See below if you fall into this category.
- 2 - Crescent Wrench
Method. Just a little more complex than the wrench method.

and measure between the ends of the prongs. The distance
between these is the size of your sway bar.
Buying the correct size bushings
