side splitters

I saw these Roush/RTR side splitters. Is there anything else on the market that is similar? Thanks.

I haven't seen any other side splitters on the market...but the Roush side splitters are really easy to install and look great!

I have a set of the Roush side splitters. They look right on the car and have an OEM fitment and look. They do make the car look lower. I've also heard they add 10 pounds of downforce at 170 MPH. ;)

Was this where you got that info?

I didn't think I would like them when I read the thread title, but they do look like they are OEM. Just need to integrate the back bumper now.

It does make jacking up the car a bit more difficult if you don't have something to reach past the plastic to the rocker. A jack rail or block with a split in it small enough to fit in the opening they leave will do the trick. Flat pads will crush the side splitter up against the rocker as they do extend lower than the pinch on the rocker. If you look at the rear lift arms you can see the extensions I made to reach into the opening the plastic leaves for jacking.

Interesting setup. How are those plates anchored to the frame? Looks like 6 bolts per pad. Is that correct? Also, are those plates made from stock 3/4" Aluminum plate?

The plates at the front of the rockers have nothing to do with this thread. I made those to pull the ends of the K members back in place after I bent them up by putting a jack stand at the end of the K member...So Don't Do That. They started out an inch thick or maybe more there is quiet a bit of mill work on the top side you can't see to make them strong but lighter than they look.

I am making some jack blocks for the rear they will attach right on the rocker near the factory jack points and extend down 1/4" just enough so I can use a flat plate to jack the car up and not put pressure on the side skirts. I'll show you when I am done.

Save the dawn for your dishes!!!
guy in this tread made a hockey puck into a great pad to use for jacking the car up.
