Fleetwood front sway bar diameter?

Hey guys...


What is the diameter of the factory front sway bar on my 95 Fleetwood Brougham? RockAuto lists a million different sizes.

As you said a million sizes. If you don't have calipers just use an adjustable wrench and then measure the gap.

This guy states he saw another's post listing a particular dia. as stock for FW. But that's like ?4th party info lol:

Question now: I couldn't wait to ditch my FE1 front and rear bars for old SS pieces. I felt no degraded straightline floatiness, but felt much more stable in turns. Aftermarket rear LCAs certainly helped too. Interested in if/why you're set on keeping the stock bar.

\'96SS SOB: SSRI, Herter Tune, Tri-Y II, , 3000 Edge, F/HO bars, METCO extendeds with CV MMC, Bilsteins, currently Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta (315/35 rear). Finally, wait for it... LT-4 knock module!
\'96FWB BUW-Butt Ugly White: PCMPerformance tune, HDFA w/ swissed filter, 1/2 SLP s.s. catback with H- and Flow Super 50s, oem opti rebuilt 3 times, SS Bars, METCO LCA, Airlift 1000, Monroe SS, PowerTrax No-Slip, CTS wheels with +1 rubber. Finally, yes again... LT-4 knock module!

It's not that I'm set on keeping the stock bar, it's that I am settling for the stock bar for financial reasons. Eventually I will buy some aftermarket bars, but for now I plan to just do bushings & end links.

I may actually swap the Fleetwood front bar for my wagon front bar, since I think the one in the wagon is slightly bigger.

Check. Glad you circled back. I'm with you biding my time with gradual gains approaching what I consider the 'perfect' ride. Not to be redundant but since the FWB is the driver I found I couldn't beat the "firm up but not lock down" + "cheapest all-in" with just some sacked out SS bars both ends. Those can be had on the cheap and scads less than anything new aftermarket. For my money it's the rear LCAs to apply any extra available funds. A used set of any aftermarket v. boxing the stock ones. I loved the oversteer with double SS rear bars on my first FWB. This time not so much and just my current sig with 1/3 coil off the fronts. Heaven + cheap.

Best luck.
