So i just wanted to update this thread after spending some time working on the car this weekend.

I went to every Ford Dealership i could looking for those GT500 specific clips, called my Ford Racing guy, and everyone just kept telling me there is only 1 part number for the sway bar clips. Every single dealership insisted there is only 1 part number and the clips they're trying to sell me will work ... i got tired of explaining they wouldn't.

Luckily, i just happened to post up in a mustang group and someone spotted that the axle had simply been cut to accept a 15 x 10 drag racing rim and all i would need is a set of sway bar relocation brackets . Explains why i couldn't find a separate part number though.

So, that being said, the sway bar will bolt right up to a GT500 axle, we just happened to end up with one that had been modified, and installed these sway bar relocation brackets.

That being said ... it is not a part i am crazy about. The fix seems kind of half ***, and they also cause the sway bar to rub our BMR LCA relocation brackets. Now, i realize having relocated both the LCAs and sway bar likely leaves a lot of room for things to not fit, and both my GF and i run full BMR suspension... just this one piece in particular i am not thrilled with, but it is getting the job done for now. I imagine for your drag racer and daily driver it will more than serve its purpose, i just don't know how i feel about it for road course and corner carving.
