Default 1976 Grand LeMans Sway Bar

Does anyone know what the diameter of the standard front sway bar is on a '76 Grand LeMans (350-2v, a/c, TH350)?

Wink Sway Bar/Anti Roll Bar Size

I believe that they came with two different sizes to order when these cars "G Body's" were in production.I have 85' GP and it had a the larger one on it,it was approx. at least 1" in diameter.Go on eBay and run a search for the sway bar and then just ask the seller to give you the size,and I would do this to about 3-4 sellers and then you will know exactly what you want to know.FYI You dont have to have a account to look on eBay.
Kind Regards,
Jason

I measured the sway bar at five different locations and got diameters in the 1.1" range: larger than 1" and smaller than 1-1/8" which are the standard bushing sizes. I checked these numbers with Ames Performance Engineering and they suggested I go with the 1-1/8" size.
