I am having a hard time with the 3 link competition brackets. I banged them in place and bolted them down with the 1/2inch bolts that go on each side. The hole for the coilover on the bracket doesnt line up with the hole on the rear end. Do I have to drill a new hole or what?

I was scratching my head last night, so tonight I need to tighten bolts.

Thanks for you help.

Loosen the 1/2 inch bolts and the bracket will move around alot, more than enough to get the coilover bolt in. The can pivot the bracket up and down in order to line the coilover bolt up. Put the bolt in from the front to the back.

maybe the brackets welded to my rear end are bent because the holes are not even close. Ill take a closer look tonight.

thanks Aaron

So the bolt goes through the bracket welded on the rear end, then through the ffr bracket, then through the coilover and back through the other side of the ffr bracket, right?

Nathan, just get out all your BFH's and beat the living crap out of it. If that doesn't work, massage the hole with a die grinder until it fits.
