Seams like a lot of work just to make it fit when there is one that fits...

Whats the cost of the GXP STB and does the 05 SE have the same brace?

I'd have to say spending about 200 on the GXP bar is alot more worthwhile than modifying the Riv bar or switching other parts around.

I can't believe you cheap asses lmao all this talk about spacers and nitching and even replacing the brake reservoir for what $50.00 Almost doesn't seem worth the effort and never mind the cost of Modding the RIV STB

Name calling will get us no where..

I'd look at moving/modifying the brake resivoir personally , maybe another GM one will work?
