sway bar fitment

I'm experiencing clearance problems with my stock sway bar.
I installed a WJ steering gear, which moves the Pittman arm right next to the frame, so that at full turns to the left, the Pittman arm just kisses the arm of the sway bar. My question is, does anyone know the width of a WJ sway bar? Jeep must of had the same problem I'm experiencing, and obviously solved it. I'm thinking the WJ bar may be a little wider than the XJ bar.

Some one with a grand Cherokee must be willing to measure the width of their sway bar? Sure would appreciate your effort.

Cut and lengthen your sway bar so it doesnt hit. Is that a possibility?

Can't cut it off, it holds my radiator up And, Bhlot, the only way to widen a sway bar withot destroying it, would cost more than a custom bar built made specifically for my Jeep. Can't weld on the sway bar without killing the temper that's required to make it work. I guess I'm going to have to get off my fat-ass and go looking for a ZJ or WJ and measure it myself.
