For everyone who has a camber kit and it hits on the fenderwell, i am goign to start tomorrow on remaking the "cap" to the fenderwell. I temporarily cut holes in the cap to make the noise stop.

So far this is my thoughts. Cut the holes a lil bigger then take some sheet metal and bend it in a way to where it clears the top of the ball joint. I'll take some beginning pics tomorrow.

I'll take some pictures of the way the holes are now, tomorrow before i start to work on it. I dont think it can travel all the way to the hood. If it would then it woulda had a much bigger dent in the fenderwell.

Pics would be great. i just don't want to risk blowing a "hole" through my CF hood.

^^first cuts. Looks like shit right now. I'll be finishing it tomorrow it will look alot smoother. Found some perfect stuff at work to do it. I'll post final results tomorrow.

edit: There is plenty of room between the cap and the hood. The shock and spring would literally have to bottom out and crush to hit the hood.

The easiest way to do that...was to drill a small hole (pilot hole) into the sheet metal. Then step it up in size with a gun drill (2-4 drilling steps.) Then to make it bigger....use a dremel with a metel cutting tool.

Be very careful with this idea. The hood is ~1/2" above the point you intend to work on. If the dimples are torn now-have them MIG welded ,painted and leave them alone. It is very important to understand that there may be a better way to deal with the problem-you will be providing no additional clearance and in fact allowing the stud to rise higher and thus closer to the hood. The alternative is to weld a plate over the existing hole/dimple flush to the 'cap'. Just my take on it. Good luck
