i've had this done for almost 3 years now with no shaking or vibration. there is plenty of bolt to lock this down. I have only retourqued this once and that was after initial install. have checked it multiple times with no problem.

hi guys,
i was planning on redrilling my hanger tomorrow so i just quickly printed the template out and put it up against the hanger and am a bit confused about 2 things

first of all im not sure where on the hanger the template goes, i mean does the top of it sit level with the top of the hanger (if so its too high) or does it have to match up lengthwise with the hanger (top of template roughly 1.5" from top of hanger

and secondly the worst problem is how the hell do you get a drill up into near the fuel tank one, it is almost totally blocked by the fuel tank, the fuel tank sits about halfway down the hanger looking from the side of the car and there is about 2" between it and the hanger looking from the rear

i haven't seen anyone say anything about this so im guessing that the US models have a smaller tank than The AUS models?

the long side goes toward the top. unfortunately it may not be sized correctly to fit nicely on the hanger. you can try both versions of the template posted and report back, if you cant get it to line up right, use the measurements posted and mark your own hole.



and x2 on the block of wood. you have to drill both holes from the outer side of the frame. after the first hole you should be able to tell when the drill is about to punch through. just remember the block of wood and control the drill.
