have u made a lower front stress bar?

Im planning to make a front lower stress bar for my car. It's an easy enough design, and a good project to do.

Does anyone have the distance between the 2 mounting points?

I'd lie under my car to measure it, but theres an exhaust pipe in the way. I know a way to measure indirectly, but i wanted to keep the trigonometry out of this if i could and the margin of error low.

if u have made one, chime in with your experiences

I think I read that the focussport front lower stress bar will fit the SVT but there was something in the way (nirvana...haha). I can't remember what it is.

But it might make a good reference point for now maybe? kick me in the nards if i'm wrong

i am modeling mine after the focussport one, but i'm not brazen enought to ask focussport "can u tell me how u made yours so i can copy it".

i just need the distance apart of the mounting points and im good to go.

The SVT Cat is in the way unless you use the off road pipe on the SVT.
