Any suggestions on the best way to stabilise it?
The new kits ship with shims, contact RSector or whomever you ordered from, they should have the shims.

Thanks - must have just missed out. What size are they? Might be just as easy to pick some up locally, since the postage might be worth more than the shims...

Try setting your lower A-arm bump stops to limit the movement beyond droop

Yes, you have to use the bump stop screw at the arms to prevent the lower ball from popping out, and the thick washer to prevent jamming the steering knuckle to the arm upon impact.

Aren't there only 5mm of shims (with stock knuckles)? I believe that the orignal plastic shims are (slightly less than) 2.5mm, 1.5mm and 1mm...

Yes, bumper braces are finished but just not have had time to market and package them. Maybe late next week.
