Exactly. I fit my pst and it was perfect but I have heard some have had issues. Not just PST but also the other brands too.

Yeah I noticed some tight space where you said it is while installing it. Already massaged the tunnel with a Hammer. The front of the Rear Subframe will see the grinder to make some more room... Just for the sake of it.

Good to know. I will need to replace mine as well at some point.

I finessed the tunnel (read hammer, LoL) twice and did some grinding of the subframe beak and still the DS shows contact. I pretty much gave up and have been driving it. I paint marked and dated the area to see if it was still making contact. I'm almost thinking there is some flex (read bow) taking place under initial acceleration. At least in my mind.
