There are also 28mm bars from police spec from memory
I had the 28 on the 1990 240 and loved it
I have a 30mm falcon front bar (whiteline) that gives me mad understeer in the wet, solid as in the dry though
Hi all - just got a reply from K-Mac about 240 sway bars. FYI may be of interest, although pricing is quite high (probably could get ipd bars for same price). Note I think his facts are a bit off on the diameters but they’re not experts on Volvos of course!
Yes, and the 2 door model OEM was 27mm Front and 22mm Rear
For Volvo at the time of the 4 door release we made 6 sets for their promotional test cars in above diameters.
Front bar with matching centre mound brackets and bushing $395
Can order / pay over phone, Visa or M/Card. Lead time at present 2 weeks.
Oof a little pricey...
Yes, way too pricey! I’ve got Mark Richardson (VP Tuning) looking into whether Fulcrum Suspensions can make bars for the 240s. With any luck maybe we can get a more reasonable-priced option in future.
Gimme a big bucks t of lime and some high carbon content bar stock,I'll fire up the gas and burn some!?
If only I learned this....
Group A setup would be good. Who's got money to burn around here?
Also, didn't whiteline design some way back when?
Who has the orange sway bars? I remember stumbling across a 25mm front sway bar in orange. Regrettingly I sold it... for $150...
Never seen pics of that Group A set-up before. Neat!

Is a gold mine of group a pics and info!
Orange = Kmac.
EL falcon front swaybars are are available in 24mm, 26mm and 27mm for factory bar sizes, depending on original vehicle spec/options.
Larger bars are available as aftermarket options. (Superpro offer a 33mm option and Whiteline offer a 30mm option)
Whiteline, for example, have a different listing for EF and EL bars - this should serve as confirmation that they're different. (EL is wider)
Be certain that you're getting one from an EL, rather than trusting the word of the bloke at the wrecker.
Thanks for the tip Ash. Next time I go to pick-a-part I’ll have a look out for the EL one. I think the one I got is an ED?? Not sure!
In order to get more clearance for the brake hoses, I decided to follow what @Ghettobird did here https://ozvolvo.org/discussion/2389/julians-240-t6/p1 (half way down Page 1). For a few dollars and minimal effort it's good insurance. Better to be safe than stuck on the side of the road (or worse).
Thanks for the advice 😎
