    I am working on installing my bolt in steering brace from ORD and it looks like the hole that I have to drill is in line with a small bracket that is clamping some hardlines to the crossmember. Have you guys just drilled it out and used the brace to bolt down that bracket, or did you relocate the backet and bolt the brace straight to the crossmember?

    Was a now defunct "Echobit" flip kit , I picked up used but never installed by the po . I got 5.5 inches from what I gather , never measured . The rear is up just a tad so it sits level severley loaded up .

    It flexes real nice , and I have no handling issues to speak of . I recommend flips , regardless of brand . This one was just easier to install :D
