    What is the diameter of the front sway bar on a base LeBaron LE sedan w/3.0?

    Rockauto has 1", 1 1/16", 1 1/8" and 7/8" listed! WTF???

    I am going to have them replaced...

    your best bet is to measure it with a caliper, because I doubt anyone will have the knowledge as to which trim came with which sway bar.

    Same here. I would measure with calipers. If not available, wrap a string around the bar, mark the circumference, and then measure it and divide by pi (3.14) to get the diameter.

    Are you replacing the inner/outer bushings? I only have Mopar part #'s that might cross-reference, I don't have sizes.
    If this is truly the standard suspension, the stock sway bar is Mopar part # 5272208, the inner bushings are # 5272219 and the outer bushings are # 5272214.

    Thanks for your research! I am replacing both because of a knocking sound from the front. I had new Monroe Quick Struts installed and the knock is not as bad, but I am suspecting it's the sway bar bushings...

    They do wear. The outers will clunk over bumps (the normally round bushing hole becomes oval) and the inners can squawk and creak over bumps. The service manual says not to lube noisy rubber bushings. Petroleum greases will attack the rubber, but silicone greases are more rubber friendly (only if you need it).

    Measure with a strip of paper, then. It won't stretch. Just wrap it around and mark it to get the circumference and divide by Pi.
