    I got the new fans fitted today, the Ranger only showed me after I got home (was gone at work all day) as he was putting the cover back on, and that change required a new sway bar to make room for the larger fan unit. Sorry, didn't get the part number or size, but worth noting that there are at least 2 different ones.

    P.S. All my above comment is relevant for a 2.5

    Next time I swap wheels I'll make a point of measuring the sway bars. Might be a few weeks though.

    How do you plan to manufacture a replacement sway bar without a Tesla to size and test it on?

    I think the sizes are 23.10mm & 25.9mm?

    but is the front one smaller?

    Definitely not. Completely different car, completely different suspension setup.

    Does anyone have part numbers for the suspension parts for the adjustable sport suspension?
    I would be looking for:
    Front dampers
    Rear Dampers
    Front Spring
    Rear Spring
    Front Swaybar
    Rear swaybar

    Its likely that the swaybars are custom but the dampers and springs should be off the shelf... Thanks if anyone can get these for me...
