Late V6 rear swaybar options?

Is the JPSS rear sway bar the only SAFE option due to the rear brake interference? Seems that Hotchkis has
rear adj. links on their rear bar that can move the rear bar out of the way of the Brake Caliper banjo bolt.
However the bar is 32mm which is too much rear bar for my square setup? Cant find the end links they use
anywhere. Need a SS rear bar, but need the longer adj. links.

Also curious about what other outboard options there are. Otherwise I'm thinking about buying an older inboard bar this spring

Hotchkiss 32mm will work on v6 brake setup. It comes with the links but make sure you have the correct lca that have the holes for it. 14&15’s have them but I’m not sure what year they started putting these lca on, maybe as early as 12.

If I recall correctly there’s enough adjustment to clear with plenty of room. This is a hollow bar so it’s not as extreme as you might think. It’s only part of the equation to “fix” the rear suspension issues but I found it to work well as a starting point. I eventually put brembo brakes on and when I pulled the v6 brakes off there was no rub from this bar setup, so check it after some driving to adjust as needed. I run 285 squared now and easily get 1g+ with this bar and many other parts.
Good luck

On my 2010 2LT/RS I have the Black Magic "JPSS rear sway bar" but had to install Z/28 LCA's in order for them to work. I also installed a 1LE front sway bar and it made a huge difference in ride/handling quality!

I have a set of newer style LCAs, end links and 1LE/ZL1 toe rods.
