Re: EA - EF (6Cyl. & V8) SPORTS SHOCK TOWER SUPPORT BARS!! Cheap too!!!

no Idea I was thinking the same myself with the intake of the EL's like I had on my Ef previously I was wondering how the hell it'd clear it?
But I'm getting it for my EA now so who cares?? (joke)
I asked them about clearance of the ef's & he fired back an email telling me they fit!
How the hell??
I think they might just be for the EA-ED but who knows?
Anyone out there got one on an EA-ED & or a EF-EL to take a pic of to compare?
Anyway I'll try to find out more soon with mine just gotta find an EF owner nearby to me now to see if my one fits once it arrives!
Cheers
Nev

yeah but you'd probably be better off spending the $100 on these rather than a K&N or similar air filter.

Sorry I disagree in the average car your shock towers under load eg: turning whilst braking etc.. can move an average of 10mm idependantly from each other!
I made up one for my brothers 71 vw s bug that runs a 2.0ltr porsche motor & the difference in every day driving was certainly noticable! braking etc too!
Anything you can do to prolong tyre life & give you more control in any situation has to be seriously looked at, end of story!

Re: EA - EF (6Cyl. & V8) SPORTS SHOCK TOWER SUPPORT BARS!! Cheap too!!!

I wanted one of these a while ago, but was told that by not alowing the towers to flex, it places more strain on other components in the body/suspension leading to possible failures. However on the flipside i've also been told that it can greatly improve the handling characteristics of a car and gives a massive difference in cornering stability. Oh well, let us know how it goes :)

the EA-ED's have a habit of stress fracturing/cracking between the 4 nuts on the inside of the shock tower.. For that price it couldnt hurt.. They do 'tighten' up the feel on the front end alot and equalise the stress across the two towers
