Question HELP! 32mm F.swaybar bushings????

I went by the GM dealership to see if I could pick up some bushings for my new Front Swaybar 32mm. They had no idea what bushing to use b/c all they had in their computer was Suspention type F1, etc,etc,etc, . Does anybody know what type of bushing i need so the GM techs can sell it to me or if you have a gm part # for a 32mm fswaybar bushing that would be the best thing! THX!

Do you know the suspension code for the 1LE? F1 ? or if anyone could give me that part of their VIN that specifies that it is a 1LE would work also. THX!

just bushings...... i put a 1LE 32mm on mine but i opted to buy new poly endlinks and bushings, your going to need new D dushings anyway. if u just look under there and look how it is hooked up you would understand a lot more. spend the money on the poly bushings... its like $30 for everything u need and its higher quality stuff..... get the most out of your swaybar while your there.

use a healthy dose of grease/lube on all bushings.
