I finally got fed up with my clamps breaking on my 28mm rsb that I decided to try a more permanent fix. Those who've had their clamps break more than once can sympathize with me. You installed them correctly, they still broke after a few months, no help from H&R.......
Well, I called Neuspeed, and they will sell you their clamps, bushings, and bolts for their 28mm rsb http://www.neuspeed.com/produc...d=240 It fits the H&R bar perfectly. And, it's a superior design by far: the clamp is heavy duty steel, fitted to the axel; the bushings are stiff polyurethane.
Now, it costs about $60 for all the hardware. But, IMO, it's worth it to have a bar that does not hang down. If it is not worth it to you, then I would recomend selling your H&R bar. Because, the crappy clamps are just going to keep breaking on you.
I did this to my car last weekend, and now I'm quite confident that I won't ever have to do anything else to my bar besides regreasing it every year. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
So, call Neuspeed, ask them for some: clamps, bushings, and bolts for their 28mm RSB.
mariomega tried this mod using the existing H&R bushings, and he says they work just fine. So, you can do it either way with safety. The NS ones are hard poly, where the H&R ones are soft rubber and teflon. The H&R ones could be easier to install and would not require lubrication. But, IMO, they are prone to failure more readily.
