    There's two types of front (1 piece or 2 piece), and two sizes of each (iirc) and about four different sizes for the rear.

    It should be stamped into the side of the existing bush, or whack a set of vernier calipers around the bar and get the measurement that way.

    If you don't have verniers, then get a piece of string, wrap it round, mark it and measure the length from the end to the mark, then divide that by Pi (3.14) to get the diameter (if GCSE maths hasn't failed me yet)
