S14 rear subframe onto R32GTR

I am just trialing an s14/15 subframe onto my R32GTR shell and the top suspension mount appears to foul the frame rail. (I am using solid offset mounts that also raise the frame)

Has anyone else found this and did you notch the chassis rail to get arround it?

This is mentioned in the fitting details for the GK Tech ones, seems a common issue that most people resolve with a hammer...

If you don't mind me asking, why are you fitting a s14/15 subframe to a r32 gtr?

Would this not change the stance of the car and also the handling?

Wider track, better anti-squat, no hicas.

Summed up nicely. In summary to improve the handling.

I will also be binning the front setup and go more conventional double wishbone to try and get rid of the R32 understeer issue and loose a lot of weight
