2010 Anti-Sway Bar Problem w/Toytec Ultimate Kit

Just installed my Toytec Ultimate lift kit today and the anti-sway bar "relocators" that came with it. Unfortunately on my FJ I had to remove the Driver's side Skid Plate bracket in order to get the anti-sway bar in proper position... and now I can't get it back on.

The sway-bar is not "straight" between the frame-rails (it is curved toward the front of the vehicle to allow room to change Toyota's new stupid cartridge oil filter) and gets very close to this skid plate bracket in stock form... with the relocators installed there is no chance of getting that bracket back on.

Anyone know if Toytec is aware of this problem? If so I think they're going to have to send a new skid plate bracket with their kits... I didn't spend $1200 for a kit that makes me lose my front skid! A drop down spacer for the skid plate brackets could work as well... but I didn't lift it just to lose ground clearance.

My Build

2010 - Current Mods: TC LT Kit, Icon Vehicle Dynamics Shocks, Demello Bumpers, Metal-tech 2-stage Rock Rails, 285/75R16 BFG KM2, BajaRack factory rack insert, Cobra CB, BudBuilt Skids, Expedition One Washer Reservoir, Rigid Industries Light Bar, Warn 9.5XP

Future: M-PAC rear systems, VIAIR, 4.56 gears (maybe), etc.

They are aware there is a problem. We cut a notch in the bracket and it works fine.

Weird. I didn't have that problem when I put mine on. It has been a couple of months, but I know I didn't have to cut anything.

Just as with Toyota, my time with the FJ has ended. I miss it greatly but am now enjoying my new Ram Sport instead.

Found out from Toytec today that Toyota has 2 different sway-bars for the 2010 FJ's... and I got one of the lucky few with the sway bar that has a weird bend in it. They are still working on a potential fix for this issue.
