ZTS rear sway bar?

Hey guys, can anyone tell me the size of the rear sway bar on the ZTS? I checked the suspension sticky and it doesnt appear to say.

Its either 20 or 21mm but Im not sure, anyone?

Derek, 1mm for the rear sway is around 20 - 25% increase in rigidity. So it should make the car a little more neutral, but it will still be understeery.

I went with a 25mm in the rear and 22mm in the front on my ZX3 and it made a nice difference.
