Has anyone else had issues with an aftermarket sway bar rubbing against the larger Moog idler arm? I have the BMR sway bar set, and I just can't get the bar to clear the larger Moog idler arm. I would prefer to keep the Moog idler, rather than installing the smaller Spicer idler arm (that I already have too), but I don't see any way around it.

My HO front bar when I had it was really close but did clear. I used the aftermarket poly bushings. Got them from Summit and the brackets had small slots which allowed a little movement fore and aft when setting up the bar. Might give you enought to clear.

I have a set of sway bar bushings from Energy Suspension, but I think the ones that came with the BMR bars may work better. The ones that came with the bars are from Prothane and are larger, so the bar is forced further away from the frame and idler arm. I guess I'll have to get a little creative.

Thanks,

Mike
