Fabtech dual steering stabilizer install question.

Finally got through installing my fabtech 6" radius arm lift and am now installing the steering stabilizer. I have got it all set in place but it looks like im going to have an interference issue between the passenger side shock bracket and the steering arm adjuster clamps. I was going to rotate the clamp out of the way but the clamp on the right is a locator and prevents this. I could take it off and rotate it but am concerned the clamp might hit something else.

The Fab Tech site shows the adjusting hardware point strait up on their dual stabilizer shot. Not sure wha tthat would do for your steering wheel, but it looks like a good way to avoid problems.

Thanks...i also talked with fabtech and they told me to rotate their bracket forward. This gave me the clearance i needed. It just didnt seem right as the area where the bracket clamps is square and now its not sitting flat but thats ok.
