I eventually got adept at getting my charge cooler out with bumper on and tie rod out, but its not a technique you could do over and over; several bumps and scrapes but for those reading in the future, it can be done by pushing the ARB up with a foot/head, pushing the top of the cooler away, and pulling it down while pressing the bottom down against the droopy area. Unfortunately I didn't take pics, but I did with the droop!

WRT 'droop' its easy enough and a bit neater to fix with a shortened bolt and only one hole:


Its one less thing to rattle, anyway.
