None of the parts stores nearby carry bushings in their stores. They sale other brands through their online store but not in store. I went to Advanced, Autozone and called O'Reillys
NAPA.

I know I am being lazy but whats the diameter of the stock front sway bar? I have searched and possibly incorrectly searched for that information and cannot find it. The local parts stores need the same information to order me some. Even the Mopar parts online catalog lacks that information. I would like to order some
https://www.hellcat.org/threads/sway-bar-info-upgrades.16646/ Front is 34 mm and rear is 22 mm.

Just pull the sway bar off and go drive it and see if the noise is still there for starters
If I make it to the holiday weekend before measuring the sway bar and ordering bushings I will try this.

I called Napa at lunch today and the guy asked me the sway bar diameter. He says they show its 26mm for the Challengers in general.

I wonder if maybe theres different sway bars for different packages on cars and they just don't know. The guy at Advance told me to call the local dealer and they should be able to tell me going by the vin number. The oem bushings cost more than aftermarket ones and I want to try stiffer bushings.

I will post the diameter as soon as I measure it

Different submodels use different sizes depending on engine and suspension.
