Make your own.
The measurement you are looking for is 13mm between the frame rail and the bottom lip on the mount. Less than that
and they are collapsed. On the 320e , it is also easier to take the bracket off the block as a unit and then do
the mounts in a vice.
PS- I use the head of a 13mm bolt as the gage.
