Tried Whiteline they dont seem to, any other ideas?

Te strut towers on the E series falcons are secured to the chassis by the gusset panels, which basically eliminates the need for strut braces since it does the same thing.

With this in mind, you'll find it hard to source strut braces for the E series falcons since they're just not required.

A strut brace wont solve ur problem.

Try a dirty big fat swaybar, new bushes and make sure all bolts, nuts and screws are in place and tight.

Like others have said, they don't need a strut brace, but Whiteline sell a kit that goes from both upper control arms to the engine mounts that are meant to be very good.

Whiteline definately used to make them then as I saw them listed in there catalogue a while ago, I'm pretty sure it was listed for EA-ED - as I remember thinking at the time that maybe EF/EL's wern't included as with the new intake manifold the throttle bodies might foul on it.

Pedders make one for E-series falcons. I definetly noticed a difference when I installed mine.
