FocusSport Lower Front Stress Car on a 2008 sedan

I recently installed this bar and for handling it works great, definitely a big improvement. The problem is when doing a WOT pull it rattles against the frame of the car. Has anyone else had this problem? I bought the bar used so is there any extra hardware that should've come with to prevent this?

It shouldn't be up against the cradle, unless it is tweaked but then it'd be tough to install. Get down there & have a look. Don't jack the car up, if anything drive on some ramps or something to see, as you want the weight of the car & not drooping. Do you have a poly dogbone?
