wide bolt spacing rear swaybar bracket to fit 1969

The '69 inner "frame" area where one would weld on a swaybar bracket is flat, all the way down to the pinch seam. The Wevo and SC/Carrera brackets fit to a curved inner frame area. If you use the Wevo or Carrera brackets, they would hang down too far. Pic of the Wevo and the silver line on the area that interferes. No luck finding one that would work. Any ideas?

Rebump. Other than the clamp around the torsion tube style, there must be another way. The plan is to use a bolt on carrera bar and aluminum swing arms, which are installed now. Might have to fab some. Maybe cut the bottoms off the $wevos$ and weld on a flat section.

Don't Wevo suggest the supports be welded reversed on the shell?

Thought about that, but there's a curved rib on the backside that would interfere and the carrera bars have a flange that keeps it from going sideways.Have to mock it up and see if reversing the mounts would put the bushings inside the flanges instead of outside. didn't see anything about that on the Wevo site.

Cool, thanks much. Never installed them on an early car.

Those are at least flat on one side. Good to know.

Yeah they are designed to work on both body types. Wish I would've seen them before I got my others

OK, to wrap up this saga, sort of per Wevo instructions, I cut a horseshoe out of 6mm plate, one tack weld at the top to hold it on, then over to the belt sander table and dressed the edges and ground the flat side into a taper so it lays flat. Should work now.
