The Little Bastard

Hey, I didn’t come up with the name, the owner did! Had a little issue with an 88 911 that was rubbing the tire on the fender under certain corners. My buddy Mark had heard a POP from the front left corner one day, then started hearing the rubbing. While simple and quick to diagnose, this is something I have not seen before, the steel contact washer that the torsion bar adjustment bolt rides on shattered, dropping the suspension almost a 1/4″, which was enough to rub on the already lowered car. Now the question is if we can find a solution for repair that does not require a replacement cross member.

Here you can see the edge of the broken contact washer.

And the right hand side shows what it should look like.
