Strut bar for klze - problem

The klze strut bar does NOT work. It clears barley over the IM, which if driven would surely smack it... Worse, when I close my hood it hits... It pushes my hood up a good half inch on either side... VERY noticable..

I have tried Soooooo many damn times calling you, and leaveing messages, and noone EVER gets back to me or even awnsers the phone... I am NOT on the boards or the computer that often so e-mailing does not work well for me in a timely matter... THis is getting so damn frustrating its not even funny...

Did I have the wrong bar sent to me or what ?

PS the finish on the bar is pretty crummy , however , i did get the bar very quickly if that matters...

i have one that came with my probe [not sure where its from] that hits the my hood too but thats becouse my bro hit a deer and it bent the hood alittle but not noticable to the naked eye so this might have happened with a previous owner

I have the same problem, I called them today and they wanted to see some pictures, so I'm going to install it tomorrow and take some pics and then take it off and get some comparison pics. Maybe it'll get all figured out.

Never had a problem recieved my stuff in a timely manner. The ZE strut brace would almost have to go behind the intake manifold in order to clear everything.

If you have the phenos. The XTC bar will not work unless you modify it. It involves a lot of time and hard work grinding down the lips and then polishing it all out again. It does fit the standard ZE with out phenos though, you just have to bend the bar a bit and play with the end links to make it work, you should have about 1/4" of clearance at the most.

I contacted Audio XTC and they gave me a few things to try, but nothing's working out for me.

The RRE bar could only be made at their facility with the vehicle on hand...and that service stopped years ago. Not much of an option now.
