Tom,

Yes you need (4) of each. Should only cost you $20 buck plus shipping.

Thanks for the help all!!! This is great [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Hey Lito,

I've been trying to phone you but I guess your busy signal means your online. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] But, I keep getting dumped into your voicemail on the cell phone too. I guess you've got it turned off? Call me, Please.

OK, I give up. When I enter the P/Ns taken from ETKA, 8N0 804 583 and 8N0 803 855, the IMPEX systems rolls over and plays dead ("Part Number not Found").

Anyone able to provide any savory tidbits of info so I may enjoy this totally excellent OE option??

thanks.

Tom, try giving them a call. If you can't find it online, they usually can find it or you can place your order right there.

Do these things sit lower than the frame stiffening rails? I like to use those to lift the car, but they're too low now that it's been lowered. (I think I'll put in NS Sofasports some day, I don't think handling is improved [more the opposite])

Tom,

They in fact sit HIGHER than the OEM pinch rails. I installed (2) of them and they are indeed higher.

So, you don't lose ANY room, in fact, probably gain a little underneath.

You can call Impex tomorrow from 10:00am to 2:00pm

Lito

PS. I've got a PDF for the install done, just can't upload them to the server. Anyone know what's wrong?? Rich??

Lito, thanks, that's good news about the clearance.

Do I need to telephone IMPEX to get these things ordered? It does not appear I can get them on line.

thx.

Tom,

Don't think the numbers are activated. Call John tomorrow. 800 736-3550. 10:00am-2:00pm

Here is a little PDF that I put together:

je,

I can check the one's I installed on my Golf when I get home. As best I can remember, they are at about the same height at the bottom of the pinch rail. But they may be recessed a little, giving a touch more room. I'll check to be sure.

It seems like you would be giving up some ground clearance by installing these pads. That was mentioned before when they had the "group buy".

By the way, what was the price on the group buy? Anyone remember?

One more thing...

If you look at the pic above, you'll notice that these pads sit higher than:

1. The belly pan
2. The torsion beam and suspension
3. The fuel line chase
4. Pinch rails for OEM lift points

Basically it sits very high on the underside of your car. These in NO way "lower" your clearance and would probably never be hit by anything. If you did, I think you'd have many more problems.

Lito...you aimed that one at me...didn't you...

Just kidding.

Looks like you'll be picking up a couple of those for me as well from Impex.

I beg my original question. Under the car there are 2 box sections to stiffen the structure. Are these pads higher than these formations, or do they sit below? I like to use these to lift the car on my floor jack, and can't now that the car sits lower to the ground.
