You shouldn't need the reducer. Unless you have been a major accident physically altering the front sub-frame, you should be able to the the CAI positioned correctly. I would loosen all the clamps and re position it the correct way. It WILL fit the way it is supposed to without any modifications. Like i said before SOMETHING is off on the alignment.
