Some have asked me to make new factory rubber bushings for the front and rear sway bars on the 88 Fiero. To do so I need some samples. The rubber pieces do not have to be perfect. I think they can make them using the OEM factory steel clamps and if they know the diameter of the sway bars. So I'm looking for some samples. Clamps can be rusty. The better the condition the factory rubber pieces are the better but let me know what you might have.

I believe the front is 28mm and the rear is 22mm.

I'm sure I have stock sets laying around.

The bushings I am going to make are the ones that go on the frame.

I also may have a set laying around the garage. I'll have to dig in and check.

Rodney, ever think of making the brackets used to mount rear sway bar? I think they were cast pieces, I'm missing one and have never found replacements. I do remember someone making aftermarket brackets but that was years ago. Bushings would help too.
Thanks

I'm getting closer to having these made. I have OK'd them to start to make the molds. Before they make them I need to know the diameters of the 88 factory sway bars. The samples I sent them are very good but they need to know the diameters of the sway bars so they can make them exact. What are the diameters of the 88 front and rear sway bars? Hard to get under my 88 Mera and measure mine. Easier to ask here.

Rodney, the 88 front sway bar is 28mm in diameter.

The 88 rear bar is 22mm.

Thanks for asking.
