    Installing a turbo kit and need to drop the sway bar an inch or so for clearance. What are you guys using as spacers?

    Washer stacks will do the trick. And be prepared to install shorter endlinks.

    I'd use flat or square stock from the welding shop and steel/iron dealer. Use a drill press, a power saw with a metal blade, or cut off disc in the angle grinder, size it close to the base of the mounts and it would look less hacked. You could really get some space that way.

    I think SN95 sway bar brackets drop down 1 inch lower than Fox's.
