    Default Anti roll bushes size?

    Hi could anyone tell me how to find out what size anti roll bushes I've got, without having to take them off the car. I understand there are 25mm and 24mm sizes.
    I will be replacing both front and rear sets of bushes and the engine code is z18xe.
    Any help would be appreciated
    Thanks, Martin.

    get a caliper gauge on the bar as close as possible to the bush.

    Worked to find out my own. only two sizes 24.2 and 25.2

    You may also be able to read part number on the bush.

    If it begins 24 its the 24.2 if it starts 91 its the 25.2

    I might be wrong but i'm lead to believe that, if the bush itself has 2 nobbles on it it's 25mm but if not it's 24mm. Might be wrong though. I just measured mine using an adjustable spanner, clamping it up around the anti roll bar then reading the measurement

    Just get the part number off the old ones (it's embossed on the sides of them) and punch it into Google or your search engine of choice, alternatively post it up here and someone will tell you

    Thanks for the advice, I'm changing my drop links and front and rear bushes at the weekend so hopefully that crunching sound will disappear

    I just put a vernier on the front ARB and it read 25.5 and the rear rear 17.75.

    Does that mean I need the 25.2mm ARB bush for the front and the 17mm for the rear?

    I can't see any part numbers or markings on them and I don't really want to order a few different sizes and have left over ones.

    That's about what I got when I measured mine, I fitted the 25mm and 17mm and they went on fine, if you can't see the part numbers try a light and mirror but as you know access is a bit awkward.

    Yes the crunching is gone, it looked like it was the right drop link but I changed the bushes anyway.
