New W Brace Hitting Exhaust

Hey all,

 

Ahead of my MOT this week I thought it would be a good idea to get rid of the rusty old W brace and replace it with a nice new one. Only thing is when I've installed it, its just catching on the exhaust. I have put in washers between the brace and the chassis but its still touching. Anyone else had this problem and how did you solve it? Thanksbrace1.jpg.6184747672c4380bf30bf3c8b7e8bae3.jpg

I had the same issue with that brace and my Miltek exhaust. Spacers solved it for me for the last couple years, but I also bought one of these: 

It was pretty cheap, so my plan was to cut the mounting points off and use them as spacer plates for my ultraracing brace. I'll probably try it out before I cut it though to see what it's like.

Interesting I will take a look. I also have a miltek exhaust.

 

I did some searching and managed to get just enough clearance with some spacers and tightening the exhaust hanger with a couple of zip ties (probably not recommended!)
