Never knew they make such. I purchased mine from Gforceengineering. What shock are they using? Any link to the GC website where these tubes are?

Ground Control's house brand is Advanced Design but they sell just about everything. Assume they could put together whatever you wanted.

Is that $199 a strut, or for both?

+1, $199 is just for a pair of collars, perches, and springs.

For your EP car I suppose? Are you also using the Koni's that Gforce sells?

We make our own but do not add the brace between the OE spindle and the over-size tube. We have several sets on racecars (EP and IT) and have never had a failure or cracking where the tube is welded to the OE spindle.

I believe that GForce makes them with the big tubes.

Yes, here is a pic of the g-force strut tube with the Koni shocks they sell. Can't see much.
