Troy, is that something I can expect when the supercharger's bolted on? And, is there any noticable vibration through the car with the strut attached?

if your car is a manual? this might happen, it also depends how hard you drive it..

i made up a strut/brace from a m 10 bolt, 2 thick L brackets and a swaybar link pin bush..
there is no extra vibration as its cushioned by the urithane bush..

here is a couple of pics..

Thanks Troy. I'll have to fit one of those as I've got a manual box.
