    Hi! Need little help with stabilizer bar bushings to replace in 1992 Taurus SHO. Thing is, it seems there was different diameters of stabilizer bars, because in RocAuto shop I found options from "Rear To Frame; w/ 18 mm (23/32") bar" up to "Rear To Frame; 25 mm to 26 mm Sway Bar Diameter". Same story with front bushings: from "Front To Frame; 19 mm Sway Bar Diameter" to "Front To Frame; w/ 24 mm (15/16") Bar". I guess I can just measure diameter on a car's bar, but may be there is any other way to understand what's what?

    Thanks.

    He lives in Ukraine. Measure it before you order if it's long distance/time shipping. You don't want a wrong part via shipping. Extra mess I hate to deal with, and I'm in the States!

    According to my records, on our 1992 SHO we used Energy Suspension 9.5160G (or 9.5160R) poly bushings for the front, substituting a 90 degree grease fitting for the straight fittings that come on them. For the rear, we used 23 mm poly bushings from SHO Source. These are high quality parts; I am wary of rubber stuff from Rockauto unless it's AC Delco or Moog because I've found the Chinese made stuff to dry out and fail quickly.
