Spc upper arms hitting my frame

When i installed my upper arm they are hitting the frame on the front adjustable arm. I dont have a pic yet but will take one. The spot is a support for the mounting area. looks like others have cut that support off, is that what needs to happen.

Yes, trim it down with a 4 inch grinder.

Re: Spc upper arms hitting my frame

Had to trim as well on my 71 El Camino, I used a plasma cutter but a grinder would work well to

1971 El Camino SS
1996 DGGM Impala SS
1996 DCM Impala SS
1972 Buick Sun Coupe GS
and a few others
