Rear Sway Bar Help

I ordered a Works rear sway bar. I was doing some searching to find out which energy suspension bushing kit to use. Someone on here said to use the 9.5109 kit which is supposed to be 24mm but I've heard conflicting information saying they don't fit. Any ideas which kit, anyone done the rear sway bar swap with energy suspension bushings that can chime in? Thanks.

Can anyone confirm whether or not the energy suspension kit 9.5109 will fit the works or progress 24mm rear sway bar? I read on here that's the kit to go with but also read different places that the brackets don't line up or fit. Could someone that's done this please lend their knowledge? I appreciate any help.

If anyone is interested, we measured the brackets and ordered an energy suspension rear sway bar kit that we thought will fit. I'll update after I try to install the new bar and bushings.

Ok I finally got around to putting the new works sway bar in. The new energy suspension bushing kit fit alright. The part # is 191109 Here. The hardest part of the whole install was lining the new bolts up to get them started in. My only issue with this kit is the bolt slots are a hair small. You either have to try to thread them into the bracket or just pound them through like I did. It barely did any damage to the threads, not enough to cause issues or concerns anyway. You could dremel them out slightly but my dremel disappeared on me. The new air tools made it a breeze once I figured out how to get around the exhaust on the passenger side. Also there's no need to remove the driver side tire like I read about on here. Piece of cake. New rear sway bar, energy suspension bushing kit and brand new bracket bolts....priceless.
