Sway bar relocation

Hey everyone so I'm about to order a set of SVE 15x10 rims and I'm seeing I have to buy the sway bar relocation bracket in order to use those rims.

I currently have the white line lower control arm relocation brackets installed, have any of you guys had any issues with the sway bar rubbing on the relocation brackets?

Can't say but, also can't see how it would, give the sway bar relos just move the bar up the shock mount a tetch. Why so much wheel? Power adder?

Are you talking about where the sway bar has the bend in it? mine rubs right there. Not sure if it hurts anything but when I did the relocation brackets for my 15x10 wheels I didn't like how it touched at the bend. Was going to just relocate the entire sway bar one day.

Nx plate, completely hidden under the cover, every line and wire covered in split loom, bottle hidden under trunk floor. Simple 100 shot.

Why hide it? Never once wanted to hide anything.

And that DP is far from hidden. And haggard

I'm not a show-off and, I want to see how long I can psych my friends at the track with this strangeley-fast stock Mustang. Plus, the car will likely blow through the cage limit on a 100 shot and I want to be able to say, "I dunno, it's stock" and thus get the stock car/no-cage ET break in the rules.

It is kinda hard to hide a direct port, true....

Do you guys have any experience with the Nano set up? My buddy used it on his vette and it seemed to work very well. I was thinking about it for my car.
Rab- set up advise?

Don't go with budget systems. You'll want more and these systems won't support it without a lot of add one. Coyotes are a little touchy with nitrous delivery. LS motors don't really care as much how it gets into the engine.

I like NX and Nitrous Outlet, or, more expensive, JMS for this application.

I was going with the nitrous outlet system and the nano 3000 psi set up. Also with the NOS controller. I'm also using the cobra jet intake.
I plan on adding a procharger when I do the bottom end

Courteous of ya, see ya over there.

This place is by far my favourite Mustang board. Not always a tech heavy as I like but people generally behave with good humour and dignity here.

So my set up is very close to the brackets but the bar has a very small amount of clearance. I'll try to get a picture of it up later. I will say I have an adjustable rear sway and I had to orient the bolts in a way that way would clear or atleast touch less.

Edit: Let me just clarify and say I have the sway bar relocation bracket (for the 15x10s) and I have the whiteline LCA relocation brackets as well.

If you've got clearance of any amount it won't change. You could also just grind the bar slightly and paint it if you need a little more.

This is going to happen with all this aftermarket stuff back there.

So I ended up having to grind away at a little bit of the brackets so the sway bar wouldn't be rubbing against them
