theshrewz Im thinking about doing that In the next few weeks zillion, cause that would make sense if that gap is causeing the tower to rub/clunk against car, since I have my st wing, steeda tri-axle shifter, and F2 header I wanna install as well.

Zillon Someone needs to try injecting some sort of epoxy (JB weld, quiksteel, etc) into the airgap between the pinch welds on the strut tower.

Should be cheap and easy to do; might even be possible to do without removing anything if you know where to look.

Phones and water donít mix, Twenty. I see you talked with him last week and have another follow-up call scheduled.

Indeed. It's the car I should've gotten anyway.

I feel pretty strongly that it does have to do with the airgap in the pinch weld at the strut tower and firewall junction, but I don't have the time to do any research on validating that hypothesis.

And Ford, give me assistance to get out of the car? Surely, you jest. I've simply had enough. Luckily I have a good personal relationship with my VW dealer, so they were able to give some extra massaging of the numbers in getting me out of the Ford and into the GTI. I still took a heavy hit on the trade, but I'm at least above KBB.
