Default Cougar Kc rear tower mod

I have seen some people run their kc's with the rear tower mounted at the back of the car but with the shocks behind it, not in front of it. It looks like the tower is located between the bulkhead mounts. Anyone know how to do it and why they do it ?.

It's mainly to move the wing forward. A few of the guys have done it but I've not as I tend to run shocks on the front.

You have to dremel the bulkhead mounts flat. I can get some pictures if needed.

I just cut 12mm off the front of the wing, the car handles a lot better with a wing in the right position

Leave this with me, I will get some pictures. However, moving the wing forward does the exact same thing.
