Before the installation of our sway bar bracket relocation kit in your Fox Body Mustang, we recommend you do this installation towards the end of your build because you will want as much weight on the car as possible. We also recommend getting help from a friend for this install so that they can help you hold the other end of the sway bar while you're mocking up your sway bar mounts.

Tools Used In The Install

  • Spot Weld Drill Bit
  • Grinder
  • 7/16" Drill Bit

Parts Used In The Install

  • LRS-5486-FRK | SVE 79-93 Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit
  • LRS-5486C-PR | 94-04 Mustang Front Sway Bar Mounting Brackets

For this installation we will be using one of our mock-up Fox Body Mustangs. Now let's get to it!


Installation

  1. To get started, safely support the car via a lift or get it as high as you can if you’re working off of jack stands.
  2. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  3. Depending on the current status of your swap, remove the front wheels.
  4. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  5. At this time remove the factory Fox sway bar and end links.

  7. The entire bracket needs to be removed from the frame rail. Go ahead and remove the factory Fox sway bar brackets by drilling out the spot welds with an appropriate spot weld drill bit.

  9. When it is, ensure that the underside of the frame rail is completely flat. You may have to grind this smooth. For the sake of our build, this is an R&D car and the sway bar brackets were already removed before the install.
  10. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  11. Use a rust preventative paint and cover any uncoated metal surfaces. Do the same for the other bracket.
  12. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  13. Whenever the brackets are removed, you can begin the mockup of the sway bar. Separate the two sections of the provided sway bar mounts.
  14. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  15. Thoroughly lubricate the inside of the bushing and any part of the bushing that will make contact with another surface with the correct grease.

  17. Install the bushing in the correct orientation and slide the u-shaped bracket onto the bushing. Then position the other section of the mount into place.
  18. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  19. Do this for the other side of the sway bar.

  20. Here is where you will need help from a friend. Position the sway bar into place and verify that the mounts are positioned under the frame rail. If needed, you can use a floor or pole jack to help hold the bar in place. The objective here is to get the sway bar as far back as you can all while considering the ear of the sway bar in relation to the strut body, accessory drive components, and the oil filter.
  21. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  22. When marking the frame rail with mount in position, I would mark as many locations as you can for multiple points of reference. This includes the bracket and the bolt holes.
  23. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  24. To check for symmetry, measure the distance from the center of the large frontward hole in the frame rail to any mark that you made. Check this measurement with the other side and adjust accordingly.
  25. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  26. Before drilling the two holes, verify that the center to center distance of these markings is 74mm or 2.91 inches and that the holes centered within the frame rail.
  27. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  28. Center punch the marked areas and drill each hole with a 7/16” drill bit.
  29. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  30. With the holes drilled, take a zip-tie, wire, or something equivalent, and tape it to the top of the stud plate.
  31. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  32. Feed one of the stud plates through the large opening near the front of the frame rail.
  33. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  34. Work the stud plate towards the drilled holes and feed the studs through the openings.
  35. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  36. Thread on one of the provided nuts so you can use this as leverage to install one of the push-on retainers.
  37. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  38. Go ahead and fully seat one of the retainers on the stud. Remove the nut and install another retainer. If desired, firmly pull the zip-tie or equivalent “fishing” tool away from the stud plate and discard.
  39. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  40. With the help of a friend, position the sway bar mounts into place and install the provided locking nuts. The torque spec for these nuts is 35-40 lb-ft.
  41. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  42. Now that the sway bar is secured to the frame rail, we need to install the end links. Hold the sway bar so that the ear of the bar is parallel with the ground and ride height.
  43. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  44. Measure the distance from the top of the control arm where the hole for the end link is to the underside of the sway bar ear. You’ll need to take into account the height of the two bushings that are situated on top of the control arm and underneath the ear of the sway bar.
  45. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  46. The way I would recommend that you do this is to purchase a new set of sway bar end links for a 94-04 Mustang so you’ll get all new pieces associated with the end link assembly. The only item that you would have to potentially source is a shorter bolt that works with the provided lock nut in the end link kit.

    How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  48. You would also need to shorten the provided sleeve to accommodate the change in height. All of the bushings, washers, and lock nut can be used without modification.
  49. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  50. Once all of this is assembled, reinstall the front wheels and torque the lug nuts to spec. A drive-on lift would be ideal for these next few steps.
  51. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  52. Be sure and verify that the ear of the sway bar doesn't make contact with the strut body whenever the wheel is turned lock to lock. To do this, the weight of the car needs to be on all four of the wheels or the suspension needs to be loaded.
  53. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

  54. Check over your work and you're all done.
  55. How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93 - How To Install Fox Body Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit | 79-93

If you are considering this kit and you're at the point in your build where you're considering painting the engine bay, now is the time. This is because you will have to remove the factory sway bar brackets to install this kit. Get them out of the way and get the car to the painter so that way you can paint your frame rails. If you have already painted your car and are considering this kit, a few touch-ups will most likely need to be made, but a quality paint and body professional should have no issues in making this happen.

Fox Body Mustang Coyote Swap Sway Bar Relocation Kit
Ensure your coyote swapped 1979-1993 Fox Body Mustang is complete with a properly functioning front sway bar with help from this SVE sway bar relocation kit! After thorough research and development, SVE has created a problem-solving, solution-based kit by designing the correct components necessary to run a 1994-2004 Mustang style front sway bar on the ever so popular coyote engine swap in a Fox Body Mustang. To prevent clearance issues and allow more room in the area between the sway bar and the accessory drive, SVE has stepped up to the plate with this problem-solving sway bar solution! Previously, if you were wanting to run a front sway bar on your coyote swapped Fox Body Mustang, custom fabrication was required in order to avoid contact between the sway bar, the A/C compressor, and its manifold attachment.

SVE Quality
SVE utilizes only the most premium components possible to provide an effective solution for a sought-after swap. Featuring a heavy-duty steel construction, the provided stud plates are powder-coated black and have grade 8 bolts that are welded into place to serve as the mounting studs for the sway bar mounting brackets. SVE incorporates the robust 1994-2004 Mustang Sway Bar Mounting Brackets from LMR, that utilize the correct center bead and side gussets. This design provides the ultimate strength to prevent any flexing and is finished in a black e-coat to resist corrosion. To keep the studs in place during the installation process, four push-lock retainers are provided as well as grade 8 nuts to fasten the brackets to the frame rails. SVE is proud to offer this sway bar relocation kit to eliminate all of the guesswork for your coyote swap project, saving you time and money!

Product Notes
We strongly recommend referencing our installation video and the fitment notes tab above.
Sway bar bushings & end links are not included in this kit due to the various thicknesses of the SN95 sway bars and ride height variables.
The sway bar mounting brackets provided in this kit will accommodate all aftermarket bushings that are designed to work with factory style 1994-2004 Mustang sway bar mounting brackets.
