Wj Rear sway bar rubbing on Diff cover

I was wondering if anybody knew the measurements on the rear sway bar bushing retainer bolts from center line to center line? My rear sway bar is rubbing on the diff cover. Didn't have time to pull the bar off and measure today, and they tend to frown upon us working on our vehicles on base in the parking lot. If anyone knows it would be great so I could make a spacer. Thanks!

How much clearance do you need? If only a bit, just stack some washers.

Thought of that, but I have a new beefier diff cover that I want to but on. Guess I would probably need about 3/4" ish...

Awesome, didn't know IRO made a spacer, will have to check that out. Thanks! Saves me from making something (which I don't mind doing) with tools I don't have right now.
