Cheap Fix $3.00

AE-4442 bore the shock tower a hair, trim a small amount from right side diff cover use 2 4-40 1 1/4 and a couple 4-40 on top with washers done. 2 minutes top. Thread lock optional. Screw the $12 FIX

The 4442 is the exact length that is needed.

I ran this version of the fix for the entire time I ran a NTC3. It didn't look bad at all. Worked just as well. No reason for a comment like you made.

Try 3 mm screws. Works just about as good and you do not have to worry about taking that long screw out, when you need to redo the diff. They are a pain.
