Sway Bar Bushings

I don't know if anyone else has ran into this issue but after a number of hours of searching I cannot seem to find Poly bushings that will fit the rear sway bar on my car (2012 v6 Mustang w/ the Mustang Club of America Package). After measuring the Bar it appears to be 22MM. All of the bushings that i have found in poly are either 20MM or 24MM. Does anyone by chance know where I can order 22MM ones that are not just universal?

here you go...pay attention to the color choices. Red is more popular but black has graphite in it. I chose black (bought mine through summit)

Thank you sir. But that is actually the first place I looked. They only offer 24MM ones that fit my car per their website.

Gotcha. I have the Perf Pack and recall the 24 mm bar and there was an equivalent bushing in inches from Energy Suspension.

If you can't find anything on their website, I'd give 'em an email or call and see what they have.

That said, the factory end links are kinda poopy. You might want to upgrade to a Steeda or BMR unit while you have the thing apart.

Actually, I tried both and wound up preferring the Steeda units. You can service the bushings without taking the stabilizer bar off the car. Plus, the Steeda units use commonly available bushings vs. BMR's custom ones.

I ended up just snagging a larger sway bar (24MM) from a scrapped GT for $25. Thank you all for the input though.

good deal. + any parts from a GT add HP. My biggest HP increase for my V6 came from the Weather Tech floor mats from a friends wrecked Boss 302.

Not a super big deal, but something i feel inclined to mention. When going to a larger rear bar on a RWD car, the rear will have a tendency to rotate more. Again, not an issue unless you're really getting on it, but if they're $25, maybe grabbing the GT front bar to even things out wouldnt be a bad idea. You're also talking the difference of 2mm though, and on a factory bar at that, so again not a super big deal just something i thought i'd mention.

Thanks for the input. It looks like the front sway bar on a GT is 34MM while the one on a V6 base is 33.2MM. Will 0.8MM really make that much of a difference?

Thought the GT front was 34.6 mm same as the V6 with PP.

also, is this something with the lighter V6 it ain't wise...idk I have fun with my car but not that much. I will say a slight increase in od will make a moderate increase in stiffness.

The GT stabilizers are exactly the same as what's used on the V6 PP. Does a decent job on the V6, to the best of my knowledge.
