well it seems rutherford are the cheapest at 500 installed. But the guy i spoke to tends to reckon the 4480's stuff the steering column or somethin like that because they wrap around near it and produce 2 much heat so he recommended the 4499's... anybody heard of this happening with the 4480's before?

hmm i got 4480's from ebay for about 400$ (new), from installed them myself, then drove to a exhaust shop to get the cat etc hooked up to the rest of the exhaust (car already had a 2.5" redback)

the steering that goes close to the extractors is just a metal shaft, so it should be ok i guess....?? you do have to take it off to get the extractos on, but its pretty easy once you do :D

ive heard upgraded swaybars make even normal driving heaps better


Yeah, it does. I have Genuine Ford EL XR6 springs and shockies, an adjustable 32mm front swaybar, and a 27mm rear swaybar, plus the strut brace, strengthened mounting points for the outer links on the rear, all Superpro bushes. Handles like a train on rails, stays flat through corners/round-a-bouts, etc.... I like how it handles.
