Default Front sway bar 30mm?

Just came across a 745turbo (89) with a 30mm front sway & a 25mm IPD rear sway bar. Did IPD make a 30mm front sway ? no tag but could be black in color. has lowering springs .. RR spring broke when car was jacked up & its looking more like a parts car than a fixer. Thanks for info.

A clue, perhaps?

Any pics? How is it mounted?

Took a close look at it today & it has a IPD tag . Measured 30mm, but will confirm that once It's wiped down. Looks like a complete IPD sways & lowering springs. My trusty HF caliper read 1 1/4" dead on 30mm. Will double check & advise.

1.25" x 25.4 = 31.75
Smells fishy.
Clean and re-measure, make sure you zero the dial/digital caliper.

I don't even think they made 28mm front sway bars for 700/900s like they did for 240s. Does it look way bigger than the rear one?

Maybe it’s custom. I used to bend bars, but not that big.

could be a random alternate application bar stuffed onto a 740.
