Eh, if I can make it work I will. It's just that spring would have to be taken beyond full extension to get the bolt in. Very, very little room. My biggest issue is actually that I want full compression to check clearance at the head/threads. Granted the Mirage has about 2" of compression before it bottoms out so really if I can get them in it should be good to go with the threads down.
From what I saw, grinding the bar to clear the bracket wouldnt be possible without removing the majority of the corner (the part that needs to be strong). My brake line brackets sit approximately 1.5"x1.5" into the bar. If I remove that there will only be a spaghetti noodle attaching the bar itself to the coil buckets.
I will have to get under there, tap a new hole and relocate the brake lines. Which means I'm a few weeks out on install as I'm not doing it without a lift. That or I couldnt see properly and it's less extreme, in which case I most certainly need a lift to see what's going on.
