    [rant on] I dont know why I expected the brace to just fit in place, nothing else has so far [rant off]

    Anyways, the oil cooler and power steering lines run directly in the path of the steering brace and doesnt look like they can be easily moved. Anyone else run into this and how did you get around it?

    Thanks

    undo the hold down on the steering line on the top of the frame, that should give you enough slack, don't forget to re-install it.
    The oil lines may need a little tweaking to the metal to get them just out of the way.

    I got mine to fit by loosening the bracket as said. It then wiggled in decently.
