Is there a heavy duty sway bar that will fit a 56 dodge?

There were two sizes of sway bar for the 56 Dodges. The D500s with the full Heavy Duty suspension, e.g. 6 leaf rear springs, got a thicker front bar than the normal 56 Dodges. Not sure what you might find now a days.

Unfortunately, the annotated photo doesn't show the diameter (guy uses the same photo studio that I use LOL):



The 1554 747 bushing ("cushion") PN listed in the eBay advert does show up in the 55-56 Parts lists:

You can run one of the thicker bars out of a 55-56 Desoto or Chrysler as an upgrade.

Yea, I have been doing some research and it looks like the Chrysler or the Desoto is the way to go.
Thanks Guys.
