Just highly likely something will break on my car.

the lower strut brace is on, but initially it was hitting the exhaust and clonking every two secs on driving... So the exhaust has been tightened higher up (so it doesn't hang down so low) but i think it's now touching a gear linkage or something.

The result is, on overrun the gearstick vibrates madly and there's a loud rattling noise from gearstick area

oh well, as long as it works.... but no doubt it'll probably break on the day? is anyone taking anything?

dunno, i'm unsure really what is causing it... Basically i found a supporting bolt that goes through the exhaust mani into the gearbox wasn't on, and raised the middle hanger. Hmm, I may just try lowering the middle hanger actually good plan.

The noise is made when it was too low was horrible, but now it feels like the linkage for 2nd + 4th is getting caught on something (perhaps the flange on the exhaust) and thus when on overrun the exhaust mani is rattling about and touching the linkages and making the stick rattle all over and transfering the sound through it.

I may actually try that though mate lowering the center bit as it may not be needing now i've got that bolt in the front bit.

Mine will probably break.

I've just replaced a stub axle, because the rear wheel bearing has been loose for the last 5k

That will probably go boom.
