I've got to get an idea of how much clearance is there. I had to remove the stock swaybar today for under the axle exhaust clearance... [img]smile.gif[/img]

Thx

The BMR bar is a clone of the HA bar. As such, it hangs quite a bit lower in the areas your exhaust runs.

In other words, if your stock bar hits this exhaust....no way in hell the BMR bar will fit.

I need to find a sway bar that bends up and is at the same level at the axle....

I think I found what I need...

Should work great as I have room behind the axle now for the cross bar and I have plenty of room for the linkages etc.

Basically, it's a bitch to get everything to line up "just right" so it won't hit anything (while moving) with a 2.5" exhaust. And with 3"....well, good luck especially considering the "precision tolerances" these cars were built to

In other words, Mike traded off the swaybar clearance (which is basically "none" now with a conventional mount bar) for an easier time running the rest of it.
