Once you make your decision, click on the corresponding image below to open a PDF copy, print and cut it out, then head over to your sway bar.

How to use the Tool

First, you have to print the tool out. Believe it or not, this is the most complicated part. Make sure that there is NO SCALING or ZOOMING when you print out the tool. Otherwise, the measurements will be off. Once you print out the tool, take a pair of scissors and cut out the tool. Wrap the tool around the bar and match the starting line with the size line. The measurement on the right of the line will be your sway bar size.

      Thanks James,

      Yeah, we thought it might save a little time and frustration. It’s important to get an accurate measurement before purchasing sway bar bushings since auto manufacturers sometimes use different diameter sway bars, even in the same year model vehicles.
