Sway Bar Diameters: W111, W108, W109

I've been looking for a W108 sway bar for my W111 Fintail because I am told it is 5mm thicker and bolts right on. I contacted MB Classic and Tom thinks I should be looking at a 300 SEL 6.3 bar but confesses not to know the specs of the other bars. Somebody out there in Vintage land must know.

I've got a 280SE bar in Utah and wonder if it is the right one.

This doesn't answer the question,but I went and measured the sway bar on my w110. 19.7mm. Not very effective. I am going to have to start looking in boneyards...
