I'm not sure sorry, but if I was in your situation I would follow these 5 simple steps;

Step 1:Pick up phone
Step 2:Ring local parts store
Step 3:Tell local parts store you need Nolathane bushes for your vl
Step 4:Pay for bushes
Step 5:Put bushes in

If your vehicle has standard suspension (non FE2) and it's a Sedan then it will have an 18mm rear swaybar and you will need these-

If your vehicle is a Wagon then it will have a 14mm swaybar and you will need these-

Problem with the parts store, is they will ask for the diameter of the swaybar and you'll be back at square one

If it is a wagon you might want to replace the rear sway bar with a sedan one. I did it in my wagon and that with the urethane bushes makes it handle significantly better.

Im in the process of putting in a full nolathane kit into my VL (sedan) at the moment.
That part above is correct
There is also the connecting stuff at the front of the sway bar, which i dont know how effective it is (im doing all of mine for a RWC) but this is included in my kit too.

Its quite easy to get the whole rear end out, and a bit of advice if your trying to replace the other bushes.... drill the old rubber out and assemble a hack saw and cut the sleeve from inside out. It usually only needs a hit with the hammer after that to get them out.

~$30

~$50 (this is not exactly for a VL but you get the idea)

I bought mine from http://stores.ebay.com.au/Online-Performance-Autos/ they were good to deal with.
