Take it steady over the hump-back bridges then several on here have contact on full droop (though from memory theirs are brake calliper touching tie bar). I'm thinking about fitting thicker droop stops on the subframe under the top arms to limit the travel- might work on yours?

Will give it a road test first. Another possibility is to notch the frame on mine. It’s beefy box we’ve used, so could modify it around the arms if needs be.
