BTW, The driving results are +++, and any stereo and you donít hear the sound, thatís why this fix has fallen down my Mod priority list.
Thanks for the response. Is the noise constant or does it occur when going over bumps, etc.? Will the mounting hardware be long enough if the STB is raised 2mm? Will any benefit of the STB be lost by raising (I don't believe so, but maybe a suspension expert can chime in)? I may have to order one and try it out. Thanks again for your info and please keep us updated when you make the spacers and install. Take care.
