Default Anti roll bar

My ARB started squeeking... I determinated is just the bushing.
I am trying to find the correct size but is all very confusing and not clearly stated
I measured anti roll bar and is 31mm tick(aprox) engine code BFL with sport suspension 2MA. Whereever I looked there is no bushing of 31mm in diametre..The biggest one i found is 29mm and is aparently for the sport suspension.
Here is a screenshot of my current bushing with part number which i am not able to google.
Does anybohy have an idea where to look?

thank you

If I Google search 028215A I takes me straight to Euro Car Parts, Audi Suspension bushes, then asks for car details...... https://www.eurocarparts.com/audi-suspension-bushes

Next down is this: http://www.strongflexuk.co.uk/audi/a...ush-sport.html
OEM part seems to be 4D0 411 327 G

Might be worth contacting Strongflex, it's entirely possible they can/do make a 31mm one, or have 3D printing capability at a sensible price.

I wonder if they 3D print, or just change the centre spindle in the mould? Presumably the outer diameter/shape is the same to fit the same brackets?

Shape and outside diameter I believe is the same as they list compatibility with A8 94-03 models. I will wait and see.
