good spot for a torque strap on a ZJ??

I am having a problem with my headers rubbing under hard acceleration and turns, can any of you think of a good spot to mount a torque strap?? Need a good brainstorm sesssion.

replaced my motor mounts, filled them with polyurethane (window weld) and even put some washers under the mount to space the engine up, and put a small dimple in the header and yet I still get some rub.

most likley they are the wrong headers for that application. try clearing room at the fender instead of at the motor. tweek the motor as far as you can and cut the fender to make room then weld the hole up so you dont get water in.

I like the idea of just cutting the unibody and welding a new plate in there with more room. could probably do that without pulling the engine too.

I'm thinking the drivers side mount for a torque strap, if I get one made, i'll post up the results.
