    Hi everybody!

    Upon the advice of my alignment shop, who couldn't get my front end perfectly aligned (last owner, wrecked, rebuilt, sloppy etc.), I bought the CompBrake adjustable suspension top mount kit model number CMB4501 http://www.compbrake.com/product/tri...ly-guaranteed/
    Beautiful product but once I got my car and these plates in the same room, the fitment is off.
    I have contacted the factory but it's a holiday and a weekend and I suspect I'll hear from them next week but I wanted to throw this against the wall - see if anyone else has seen anything like this.

    The response I got from CompBrake was this:
    "Right so normally what happens is you centralise the Topmount on top and redrill 3 holes (( In a triangle shape )) which doesn't effect the Turret Top in anyway ."
    So the basic message it to make your own holes. This puzzles me but I can easily move on. After all, what's a few extra holes in a British car?

    Sadly we could not get the strut mounting plates to work. The only installation instructions were what the company told me verbally over the phone.
    When I asked for pictures, I got pictures of a completely different product.
    Two attempts, more than a few hours labor, I've got more $ in the attempted install than the parts originally cost.
    I've asked the company for an RMA to send them back.
    They looked so cool too.
    On to bigger things....it's still early.
