Does anyone have a solution for front brake ducting that works with the LH/LX spoiler duct when you have a front mount anti-sway bar? I'm thinking about something like this. https://www.ebay.com...Q8AAOSww1JbcoBu

But the dimensions of the "funnel" don't match the spolier opening, which is 23cm x 5.5cm.

 

Cheers, Steve

I personally would fold up an alloy duct. What sort of front anti swaybar? If it is that whiteline type that bolts to the front bumper mounts, i would redesign the whole mount arrangement to how the kmac ones used to be and then you can choose the best place to mount the bar and make room for brake ducts. Could possibly still use A9X ducts still then.

Yes, it is a whiteline. Food for thought, thanks Mat.

The bit of the front rails where the bumper mounts is not very solid,it is only a dingle thickness bit of steel. Just rearward it is double thickness. That whiteline mounting setip weighs heaps and is a massive space hog..

I folded and welded up my own funnels with tubes on the back. Made backing plates behind the discs to attach a high temp silicone flexi hose to.

No but thinking about it. Might also have to try what ozy did, but holding back as it will take me a lot of manhours with my skill level....

I use coke can carton cardboard for making templates.
Can tape it together to see how it looks for fitment, then transfer to steel or alloy.
No its not a 5 min job but careful attention it comes up well.
The backing plates i made from steel and used the steering arm an caliper bolts to secure them.
The funnels at the front were held by the spoiler mounts and what ever i could attach to.
Demon tweeks in Uk have a list of brake ducts(funnels), may be able to find a shape/size you can work with to help save some time, they do ship to OZ
