Will GS Sway Bars Fit the TourX

New owner here and I'm wondering if, 1) the GS sway bars are more aggressive than the ones on the TourX, and 2) if they will fit on the TourX? Swapping sway bars is a method I've used to improve lateral handling without compromising the suppleness of a factory suspension; I'm not interested in changing springs. Alsodering where to find OEM Regal/TourX parts online. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

For the parts site:
https://www.gmpartsdirect.com
You can check if there is a different bar available against your build codes.
Also check OPEL on the forums in the Euro side as they may have more aftermarket parts across the pond.

Glad to see you found what you are looking for, as I mentioned there may be more parts available from the EU as its a bigger market for Opel.

Yeah, I was surprised initially when I read that. For the AWD GS the FSB is #84144882, RSB is #84119838; both are the same for the TourX. That might seem odd, but Infiniti does similarly with their AWD Q50 and Q50 Red Sport; both have the same F/R sway (stabilizer) bars, while the RWD models have different bars.

The GS doesn't have larger sway bars because it has the adjustable MagneRide struts to improve handling. You would have to install that setup on your TourX to allow it to handle like the GS.

Most people know that larger sway bars improve handling, but there aren't any available are there? And I don't see suspension companies putting the time & money into developing thicker sway bars for a TourX wagon.

Eibach does have parts listed under the Opel Insignia, so maybe not looking for Buick will get better results. There's also a Australian preformance part shops offering parts for the Opel brand name as a FYI.

I said they had parts, they have zero parts for Buick listed even of the same car. So anyone who is interested in getting parts should include Opel as part of their search. Sorry if it was confusing.
