1LE swaybar?

Ive searched the board, but couldnt really find a clear answer. Ive found a brand new 1LE swaybar for cheap and was wondering if it would fit on my GN. I believe its out of a 4th Gen F-Body, but might be from a 3rd gen. Also, what size would that be, 36mm?

Just wanted to ask before I spent any money.

Thanks.

4th gen wont fit. The 3rd gen bar will be either a 36mm hollow bar or a 34mm solid bar. The 4th gen 1LE bar is 32mm. The easy way to ID them is by the shape. The 4th gen has a kick up in the center where as the 3rd gen doesn't. Here is a pic of the 4th gen bar.

Thanks Eric. You're the man.

If I did pick it up, would I use the Buick bushings and endlinks, or those from an F-Body?
