Hotchkis brace works great and lets exhaust fit.

I just put on my ARH LTH and they come down to far and interfere with the front brace. I was able to put it on but it now touches the exhaust pipe. This brace does look like something I could use because the back side of my brace is fine, it's just the front that touch. This SW brace is not as deep and it has a nice notch in it to allow the piping to not touch. I was thinking to cutting and modifying mine but if this one works, then I see no harm in using it.


UPDATE:


I also found this https://www.moderngenauto.com/Gen-5-...RoCBcoQAvD_BwE But it's way more expensive. I wonder which is better?

I installed a full competition 3 inch dynatech exhaust for coupe. Remade the braces, modified the rear section, and everything is fine with bracing in all the original areas.

^^^^ In that last pic, are you only using 1 bolt hole from each side? My bracket that I'm trying to build will use 3 bolts per side but in the middle, I'm gutting it out to a point where it's only going to be about 4in thick.

I replaced the intermediate brace making an “X” brace flat stock and welded in the center which provided better clearance and which I felt is stronger. At some point I will remake these with aluminum stock. The front sheet metal brace was replaced with offset flat stock which can be easily made. The lower rear brace housing needed to be trimmed to clear the mufflers (size will dictate”. No spacers and longer bolts needed.

Here is my updated brace. I still had to use some washers to clear things.
