Default Front Sway Bar Width

I did some searching but couldn't find anything. I'm looking for the width of the sway bars (outside tip to outside tip) for a 2002 WRX sedan and 2002 WRX wagon.

I swapped a 2002 WRX front crossmember with control arms into my 98 legacy when I did my motor swap. The donor car had an aftermarket front sway bar although I'm not sure of the brand. It's black and has two mounting holes at the end links for adjustment. I put it all together but the end links are binding on the bar. It's like the bar should be wider or narrower so the end links can clear it when the suspension travels. I'm wondering if I may have inherited either a wagon sway bar or one for an earlier impreza.

I actually have both... They measured 42.5" for the sedan and 41.75" for the wagon, as stated above.

You are a god send! Thanks so much. It turns out I have a wagon front sway bar. That's why it wasn't working right! Time to put it up for sale! Thanks again.
