    Advantage of 05 sponsons on an 04 RXP?

    What benefit doe the updated sponsoons give an 04 except for looks?

    well if you upgrade to the newer hardware at the same time you are gaining quite a bit of strength in the sponson itself. The 05+ sponsons use much larger hardware.

    I found the 04`s to flex and pop the cover up and catch grass and crap...
    the 05`s are stronger, shaped differently...

    If you lower them to the lowest postion possible while still being above the bottow hull line there is a performance gain. I know guys do this a lot. I'm not sure if new holes are necessary or not.

    no, actually I believe that guys claim they prefer the lowered stock sponsons rather then the aftermarket ones.. I think this is what I will end up doing.

    The most obvious advantage is getting rid of the horrible looking 04 sponsons.
