What size is my rear sway bar? 15, 16 or 17mm???

I have a 1994 camry LE, with the I4. Its a coupe. How do I know what diameter the rear sway bar is, because I need to replace the bushings and they offer a 15/16mm, and a 17mm. Thanks, any advice appreciated.

I looked at my 96 camry, and the sway bar appeared to have some kind of plastic coating which was torn off around the bushing. so maybe it uses 17mm with the plasticoating, and 15/16mm without the coating.

Is it me??? But why not just get a small metric ruler and measure the diameter of the rsb? The rsb is easily accessible without jacking up the car....at least for a small person.

Jobee here is the best thing to do.

Go to Toyota Parts and ask for a RSB bushing and look at the side of it. It will say 15. I swear that is the size because I just looked at one last week.

The 92-96 4CYL has the same diameter of 15mm

part number 48818-33031

The Spec Sticky says this:
17mm Rear (0.67") for the 4cyl or SE models
15mm Rear (0.59") for the other V6 models

24mm Front (0.94") for the 4cyl models
23mm Front (0.90") for the 6cyl models

these numbers apply to the 3rd Gen, and i believe sizes changed for the 4th Gen

the Gen 3 Parts List says this:
Sport Package: #48812-33070
4 Cyl Standard: #48812-33030
V6 Standard: #48812-33020

http://camrystuff.com/manuals/Gen3/G..._part_list.pdf

The part number for the bushing is on Page #950 upper right hand corner
4CYL p/n: 48818-33031
V6 p/n: 48818-33011

Everything about the GEN3 rear suspension is on that page

Check for yourself!!!!


Venom: he is asking for the bushing, the p/n u gave is for the actual rear sway bar!!!

i gave the sway bar part on purpose, because with the part # he can determine the diameter

I've done this upgrade on my 1996 4cyl(look at the pics). The stock RSB diameter is 17mm. get 17mm bushings and you'll be good.
