Can anyone reccomend a good one and a good place to buy one from?

I know they need to be a specific bendy shape to fit over the 16v engione and i have heard some still foul on the engine.

Does anyone know a make/model that does fit perfectly??

The one I got from PVD didn't fit (surprise surprise) The one I have now is a GT performance one, and fits perfectly as well as being adjustable. Check out the website GTperformance.co.uk

what is the benefit of them? My main problem is creaking noises, i wonder if front/rear braces will help.

Im on FK highsport coilovers and 17's if that helps.

no the creaking will most likely stay mate. they stiffen the front up and help under cornering etc.

no doubt ful to be honest. get one if you want ur engine bay to look better! if you drive your car very hard you notice a difference but not much, also wit hcoilovers people say u may aswell remove the anti roll bar!!!!

just what iv been told by nova owners with coilovers, say that with the anti roll bar and coilovers the car tended to lift a wheel, so they removed the anti roll bar and it was all gravy
