Pedders work with FE5 rear bar?

I am wanting to convert my rear sway bar and rear lower control arms to FE5 ZL1 but I have seen some people say that it can not be done with coil overs installed. Is this correct?

Only KW variant 3 coilovers or Clubsports with welded on reservoir is in the way of the newer endlink. Coilovers without external reservoirs would not be an issue. Supercars, BC ER series also should work I hope haven't looked into that yet. FE4/5 rear swaybar setup is way better than FE3, DO it, DO it.

It will work!!






The new 32mm bar takes up space, but there are ZERO clearance issues.

That's not my car. They're two different cars. Both 2SS with the stock P Zeros. I have Pedders coilovers but haven't gone to this bar yet.

The Pedders ZL-1 swaybar will clear the Pedders Supercar reservoirs. I bolted my rear ZL-1 swaybar in place yesterday. Only thing I had to do to clear is re-position the reservoir and slightly turn the reaservoir mounting bracket so there was enough clearance for all the parts.

Addition: I forgot to mention that I am making my own endlinks. I need the endlink to clear my 18" race tires, and the poly bushing/bolt below the Lower control arm will not clear. I am modifying my LCA's using a rod end and the EP098 kit to build the endlinks.

I am doing most of the fabricating this weekend and will have pictures afterwards.
