Scott and all,
Alex Aristoy solved this problem by fashioning reinforced angle steel
brackets that mount to the subframe using the tie rod bolts.

The brackets angle down and project rearward far enough to accept Energy
Suspension urethane sway bar bushings/mounts.

End link bushings/cups are also from Energy Suspension(part # 9-8105 for the
set of 8) that are trimmed slightly to fit the stock end link.

Alex uses REAR control arms, not front arms.  He also claims to use stock end
links, but the ones I saw seem to have different angles from stock.

I have promised pix and add'l details to a group of folks -- I haven't
forgot.  I'm trying to get measurements for the brackets.

Also, my photos are paper.  Anyone want to volunteer to scan/post these?  I
can mail to you pronto and then provide add'l details via a post to the list.
