Thanks Allen. Curious to see where this nets out for you.

My uninstalled parts pile includes a Flaming River quick steer rack, Z-Ray/OTR competition cross member w/ jack pad, Cobra Automotive quick steer pitman/idler combo, Baer Tracker outer tie rods, Granada spindles, and OTR lower OEM style control arms. Sounds like I should be prepared to have a similar issue...

Check the height of the vertical plate that the bar (tube) itself welds to. If it's 3", I'm speculating you will also.

Just looked at mine for a stock pan, no wonder I had so much room on mine. Good catch guys, a case of tunnel vision I guess. For me anyway.

Kudos to Mark today. He wasn't going to quit until we found it...

@Turnall what I thought I’d find... Are you having the bar modified?

As Brian said, ZRay is making me another one and I'll use this one on my GT. For the record, I measured from the top of the plate (not the bottom or inside as you are). Looking at yours, It should measure exactly 3" from the top of the plate. If all is the same as my car, it will interfere with the tie rod zerk on the driver's side. Of course, all of these cars are somewhat different so YMMV...

It is possible to take the extra metal to the side and beneath the bar off (grind it off) without compromising the bar. Since I had planned to get one for the GT anyway, I decided to just get ZRay to make me another one with the shorter veertical plate.
