    I'm new to the site so my apolagies if this has already been discussed.

    I have a 2006 F250 that I am putting a Meyer plow on. Everything is mounting up the way it should with exception that the sway bar is in the way. A friend who worked on fleet trucks told me there was a sway bar relocator kit for Fords when you put snow plows on them. When I called the local Meyer dealer they had never heard of this.

    Has anybody else had this problem or know of a relocator kit for the sway bar.

    Thanks in advance

    Cant answer your question but wanted to make sure you know that if you have to, you can drive it without a sway bar until you get it resolved

    What kind or mounting system do you have? My is a EZ Classic and it doesn't even come close to hitting my sway bar, or are you talking about the track bar?

    Hi

    I have ran into this once before, I was trying to put an early style (99-04) MDII mount on a newer 05 -07 F250. I solve the problem by using the newer edition MDII mounting kit.

    I think it's a EZ Classic. The one with the removable hoop. I guess it could be a track bar not real sure. The bar bolts to the frame and has pins that go down to the front of the suspension. After removing bar the plow mounted great but friends are telling me it could cause problems when towing.

    My plow is also the EZ Classic. I strongly do not recommend leaving off the track bar. It holds your axle centered on your truck frame. By taking it off you put all that load on the springs and other components. I don't know what the difference as to why your mount is causing this problem. Make sure you have the right mount. I know our trucks have sometimes had a different mount half way through a year because of design changes from the factory. I would do some more research in the matter. Sorry I am not much help, I am trying to find a answer for ya.
