Sway bar sizes

Hey boys and girls, just curious if someone can tell me how big the sway bars are on a 2001 SS, I have a chance to pick them up and put them on my 1995 Z28. I know the front one is 32mm, just curious if the back one is 19 or 21?
Thanks for any help, I'm having trouble responding to posts so don't take my silence as rudeness

Its the same as what you have already if the SS doesn't have the optional suspension package on it. Quick way to tell is if the SS has orange shocks its the same thing you have, if they are the blue, Bilstien shocks it has a 32mm front and 21mm rear.

WRONG! In 2001, the Z28 had 30mm front and 19mm rear. While the base SS had 32mm front and 19mm rear (yes, look for orange shocks). If it has the bilstien (yellow/black* shocks) or 1LE (yellow/blue* shocks) suspension it will have 35mm front and 21mm rear.

* According to SLP's site.

Sorrry, but you are wrong!! We went out and measured my buddies 2001 SS with the standard orange shocks and guess what??30 mm. 35mm was never available from SLP or the factory, 1LE was only a hollow 32mm bar with a higher durometer bushig, 21mm in the rear, with the same bushings. Read their site better, I did. The only sway bars they sell are the 1LE ones, and those are what are optional on the SS....but you can get a solid 35mm sway bar from Suspension Techiques for the front.

Why don't you follow your own advice, and also ... here are the links to SLP Engineering, Inc (not SLP Performance Parts), the division that made the SSs and Firehawks! This applied to all 1999-2002 models. If your "buddy's" SS has a 30mm sway bar, it is not a real SS or he (or the previous owner) switched it. Do you know how to measure a sway bar?

And if you still don't believe me, go over to SLP's SS Message forum and ask about the sway bar sizes.

He's right...

SS/WS6's have 32mm/19mm F/R sways
Y2Y Bilstein SS's have 35mm/21mm F/R sways
Y2Y 1LE SS's have 32mm/21mm F/R sways
Z28/TA/Formula's have 30mm/19mm F/R sways
