FC swaybar relocation brackets
« on: April 12, 2020, 04:56:36 AM »
We're making FC swaybar relocation brackets.

No idea why we haven't to date.  Seems like an obvious hole so the goal is to include them in all supreme kits once we launch.  It probably doesn't help that all the stock interfaces have been cut out of my own car in favor of a speedway bar.  Anyways, I had a friend take a bunch of dimensions and I'm looking for a double check on the critical dimension: Hole spacing on the frame rail. 

Anyone got a car on jackstands and a set of calipers who could take a measurement for me?  I think it's 60 mm hole to hole at CL.  The the easiest means of measuring holes is not at CL but from edges.  For the one in question at the frame rail this would be the like measuring from the forward most edge of the front hole to the forward most edge of the rear hole.

Thanks,
Joel

Not only is the car on jackstands (Ronin headers coming in the morning from Jet Hot) but I am putting the RB sway bar on so everythings pulled apart.

Plus, I like doing things the hard way... I put transfer punches in the swaybar holes and smacked a little piece of aluminum bar. 60mm on the dot.

Here's the design I just released to fab.




A little more trick than the simple blocks of sawed aluminum some folks run.

I run a similar spacer but the S4 end links are at/past  the point of binding.  The ends are set at 90* to each other and moving the bar forward puts the LCA mount into bind.  A nice set of heims would be nice, or the LCA end of the link needs to be bent to reduce the angle.

S5 has a different link
