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. :D

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.

Looking good. I wish there was some nice SS's where I live. I see one or two driving around, but I don't think they have anything done to them.

Lookin good man, that wax really makes the color of the car stand out! Mine is in desperate need of a wax and some tint...lol, but I have to wait till I get back to work, been off since Dec16th (in school) and the only mod that I have been able to do was the K&N Typhoon, but I've noticed a hugh difference with it and I'm still gettin 32 mpg on the highway!! :D

ya one of our porters actually recomended zymbol, thats why i use it. also, i use a power buffer or whatever you wanna call that thing. comes out much smoother and takes that ruffness out of the back area of the car.
