so my sway bar is rubbing on my strut bar on the driver side ONLY, after i put a 3" lift on (spacers on front, blocks on back). i read around on here and made a call to toytec and he tells me its offcenter, buy the positioning clamps and have them put on. so i had them put on today, did not help a bit. the guy and i look and its not so much side-to-side offcenter, its more cock-eyed front and back. the driver side part of the sway bar is pushed back more the the passenger side, causing it to rub. he is lost for ideas, so ive done some more searching here on TN, and ive come to this...

1) remove the sway bar, but with my stock suspension i dont know if that'd be too good of an idea since i drive my truck 100% on the road

2) buy a relocation kit, but i wonder if that will help the problem since the sway bar is pushed back on one side

3) buy a coilover kit with the spacers, and then take off the sway bar if necessary. but thats $$$$

so i ask those that can help, will the relocation kit help? if not what should i do. im so tired of it rubbing and squeaking. if you have anymore questions ill answer them

maybe you can loosen the clamps holding the swaybar under the truck and push it to the other side a bit.

just an idea

Relo kit for sale

I pulled off my sway bar and thus do not need the relo kit that came with my C/O's.

PM me and we can discuss more.

I had the same issue when I lifted my truck. The swaybar was rubbing the drivers side lower spring mount.

My solution was to take the U-shaped swaybar bracket off of the drivers side and elongate the round mounting hole and turn the bracket 180 degrees. This allows you to move the swaybar far enough forward so it doesnt rub anymore.
