    I bought a couple of strut bars this weekend and am having trouble getting the front one on. When I try to bolt it up the bar hits top of the i.m. It's probably becuase of the way the swapped motor fits, but do you guys have any idea on how to make it fit? thanks

    You'll just have to buy a different bar or have custom mounts made that will allow the bar to clear the IM.
