Ae112r sway bar bushings F&R questions

Recommended Posts

Hi members, 

Recently needed to change sway bar end links on my 1998 AE112R-ALPNKQ ALR lift back auto so I decided to change the bushings aswell, so I ordered the whiteline bushings (because I ordered the end links from them aswell) and it was recommended in 16mm so I got 16mm

After recieving the product I pulled the old one off and I noticed the old factory swaybar mount has a 17 written on it. Does this mean the old bar is 17mm and not 16mm? (the 16mm didn't fit, and I got a full refund) 

After that, I decided to use a 17mm and 16mm spanner to see if they fit on the sway bar, and the 17mm fits snuggly and 16mm requires more force than I'm willing to use. 

Front sway bar doesn't even fit a 17mm, it's way too small. I thought the rear sway was meant to be thicker then front in a fwd car?

I contacted two local Toyota dealers and they think the front is a 25mm, but they are very adamant the rear sway bar is 16mm. 

This car has been In the family since new, i have  full history and never changed the factory sway bar. 

Anyone encountered this? 

I don't have callipers to properly check the size. 

All help appreciated, 

Cheers jf
