Upgraded front sway bar rubbing strut rod
#1
I installed a new Belltech sway bar 1.125” and it was really tight but after a test drive I see it’s rubbing slightly on both outer edges of the front strut rods

Will making a taller spacer sleeve to raise the angle a bit help?

Please advise and thanks in advance

I guess I'm confused. I thought the sway bar was on the inside of the struts. Do you mean the outsides of the sway bar are rubbing on the inside of the struts? I would try different link lengths, to get them on different planes before I tried to adjust the height of the bushings.

Yes that is correct. The outsides are making contact with the inside
i wasn’t sure different end links would be a solution but it makes total sense to raise the ends up enough to a better clearance 
thanks for the input Don!
