That grinding isnt good, its putting pressure on the motor mount. Thats why I took it off already back in october and was waiting for the replacement bracket. If that motor mount breaks I'm sure its not cheap to replace.

I know it's ghetto, but I put double sided foam tape (the good and thick 3M brand) on the side of the bracket. Some vinyl decal over that to weather proof it a little (part of my business, plenty laying around) and the left turn grinding noise is gone. I figured the tape wouldn't hold up more than a few days between there, but it's been over 3 weeks and it still looks like it did when I first put it on.

Temporary fix until I get new mounts and bushings, I'll probably ditch the brace (Weapon R). I notice no difference what so ever with wheel hop using it, stronger and smoother shifts, though.
