Default Stabilizer Bar Bushing Insulators

Does anyone know where you can get bushing insulators ? They seem to be unavailable, which doesn't surprise me in the least. I've got a rattle on the right front side over bumps and you can also go over one on the left side and the right still rattles. The sway bar links have been changed and are tight using a pry bar. New strut mounts in 2016. I was told to try rapping the bar with duct tape and see if it stops it, then the problem is the insulators. A co-worker gave me a ride home a few months ago and his Chevy Equinox Made the same noise, on the same side. I asked him what that was and he said the tire shop said it was a bad tire. lol. Really?! He spent $350 on new tires and the second ride home it still did it. Someone didn't know what they were talking about there. What do you do if you can't replace them, drive it like it is ? Maybe somehow I can find some universals. I just need the diameter of the bar for the correct fit. Thanks for any info.

From what I found, Moog makes insulators by bar diameter. That's probably what I'm going have to try.

Does anyone know the Sway Bar diameter ? I can get universal bushings from a Moog dealer but they go by diameter. If not, I was going to mic it. Thanks -In-Advance.

I looked up for Vectra B on a French parts site, and it came up with Moog OP-SB-6806. Is this what you are looking for? I think it looks like the AC Delco piece. The page also shows the specs, so maybe you could find a Moog or similar part from the US.
(I had to buy the short end cables for the emergency brake for drum brake models from the German EBay site, using Vectra B as a reference, parts non-available is a problem for us, keeping our L's on the road)

I'm not exactly sure. I may be incorrect but my Sway Bar measured 19.99 MM with the micrometer today at work. I assumed it would be a 20 MM inside diameter insulator then. I may have it mic'd by a tech just to make sure sure I have the correct measurement. The one in the link looks a little small and it shows it's 16 MM inside diameter. I'm not too good with measuring instruments.

Front stabilizer bar bushing kits are easily found online through OEM parts websites and are not expensive. Our L-Series cars use the same sway bar regardless of engine size and model year. By way of example see the link below, item no. 2.
