also will these extractors clear my steering rack ? in my EB http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing ... =384696165

they look the same as i had in my old ef v8 no idea on the brand but seem pretty cheapish


Yes, they are the same as what I have, but a lot shinier lol. The seller is Tristram, he is also a member on here.

There are also these ones I spotted last night if you want them a little cheaper. http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-par ... 299666.htm

Same thing, but more used.

Decided to keep the rear wing on there, just couldnt get used to it not being there lol, Ah well atleast i got all that silicon out from under it lol.

Also got my gearbox serviced since i dunno when it last had it done, wasnt expecting any change but goes heaps better now so thats a bonus.
