Wow, never saw those fender braces before!
How much for that rear diff brace I see here?:

I assume they are for GC8?
Very cool company logo I might add.

The eibach prokit price is for a new set right? If so, good deal since everyone else seems to be selling them for about $20 more.

Eibachs are brand new, we have a set for GC8 as well.

I have another set of Ohlins that are Drift spec as well for sale and a set of GC8 Tein HA also one needs a rebuild so if anyone is looking for a deal I can make you one.

Fender braces reduce teh front end flex by making the front end more rigid. I was skeptical at first but the weld in the pieces on our PRodrive build GC8 shell and when I spoke with their engineers they said that this will greatly improve front end flex which provide crisper turn in. They do not change the pieces on the Group N shell because they put the cage through the firewall as well which performs a similar function. Made from 7075 Billet it is the strongest you can get.

I can explain why fender braces are important.

You only need them if you have a Strut bar.

Strut bar's stiffen the strut towers. On formula cars when we do this the stress just moves to the next line of least resistence which on a WRX is the upper rail. It is tied into the A pillar and is the waekest point. All the Attack and track guys in japan have found the only way to control the flex is with fender braces.
Even though you do not see them they are a key part to fully TUNE a suspension .

No offense but those colors I see on your suspension listed as V8 Spec C's indicate regular V8 STI suspension. The spec C's are different.

Stevie no offense but the color theory does not realy hold water I know where I got these from and is was not from a junkyard in Japan. They came off of spec c and that is what i have been telling people. The Spec C version is what these are from I saw the cars before they were parted at Prodrive so you are incorrect.

I know the color dot theory doesn't hold up either.

Steveid, please drop it. The only way to know for sure is to look the part numbers up.

Steve while I know that htere has been speculation for some time on the internet about which struts are actually from. Now all the dampers are the same model number this is something that everyone has agreed on. Now to the colors let me explain something and that is every set I have received has had different dots. SOme purple orange and green and others in various combinations. Now I know where I purchase my parts from and it isn't a wrecking yard in Japan or off Yahoo Auctions Japan. The fact is I see these cars complete before they are parted out. Now can anyone else say that about the stuff they received. Good luck that is all I have to say about it.
