i found this with my mp clamp and brace, do you have lowered springs fitted? what happens is the steering control arm hits the brace bar so i fitted a piece of rubber hose around the brace and that stopped it

Hello Boxman. Having the brace hitting your track control arm sounds like it needs sorting-out soon :suprised; The arm moves in-and-out and up-and-down with the wheel and the brace is fixed to the car. Something is going to give sooner or later. Probably when you least want it.
the contact is not harsh enough to cause a prob like this it only kisses on bad bumps in the road and not hard enough to remove the paint from the track control arm so i'm not worried

I looked at the MP brace and how high my control arm was (lowered springs) and can also confirm that it don't-fit. Didn't buy it and made a curved arm myself which has clearance.

The Abbott one goes in underneath and doesn't collide.
i now have a simular clamp & brace to the abbott one but i have modded the mp brace and added it to my new clamp so i have now got a brace on the top and on the bottom of the brace and it made quite a differance :lol:


Got visions of a 3-wheel Saab stuck in the Armco :eek:


.
thanks for your consern :D i'll see what happens when i get my koni adjustables fitted to the front, if it still kisses i may look at modding the top brace cus the banging does get on my nurves
