New steering stabalizer

replacing the trashed stablizer on my 80 jeep project with a beefer rancharo, of course a litte to beefy for the availble space. It looks like i can move the lower backet around a 1/2 inch or so and make it fit or just flip the upper bracket upside down. however not sure about the safety factor but then does that count on a jeep

Perhaps you mean Rancho. In any case, I would contact them to see how best to fit it to your application. Maybe there is a kit. If it turns out you have the wrong part, I would just return it for the right one. You did say you were concerned about the safety factor, correct? Safety trumps saving a couple of bucks.
