Upper Control Arm Hits Electrical Clip

Im in the process of installing a 3.5 Game Changer (Fox Edition) Lift Kit on my 2016 JKU Rubicon Hard Rock, which is equipped with factory front and rear electronic locking differentials. Upon installing the drivers side, front, upper control arm, I discovered that it's in firm contact with a plastic electrical clip on top of the differential. Do you have any recommendations about how I can relieve the pressure from the electrical clip? (I haven't fully completed the install, so the front axle is still drooped and the hardware has not yet been torqued.)

Thanks for any recommendations!!!

You can grind away some of the control arm so it's not hitting the connector.

Or call Metalcloak directly for an answer to your question, they haven't been on this forum for almost 6 months.
