I ended up cutting the mount to create enough clearance. I'll pull some pics from my phone and post them up. I figured it would save me time in the long run. I'd agree that between the rear mount and passenger mount 95% of the nasty wheel hop is gone

AWR's jig must have been dropped or something? There wasn't enough room to position the AWR rear mount and bracket, so that the bolt could slide in. (Pulling pics off my phone)

Here's a pic of the AWR Rear Mount and the stock bracket. This is the best I could line up the two pieces. The stock bolt was NOT going to fit.


Here's a pic showing what is impeding the holes from lining up. Metal on metal contact. Even if the bolt could be forced in, these two metal surfaces rubbing would probably make for some wonderful noises :P


This is how much metal I opted to remove.


Success, the stock bolt fits and the mount & bracket now have similar range of motion as the stock mount & bracket:



This pic shows how much material I removed. Ignore the bass boat touch up paint



I really love the AWR passenger mount. I was impressed with the design, fitment, and how it has performed. Sadly, I don't feel the same way about the AWR rear mount.

Oh well. The car should be more fun now

Nice pics and write up Kevin. I see what you're saying. I'm assuming flipping the mount didn't help any. Surprising to see that, that's definitely a problem.
