The EB facelift hardly altered the apearance of the
EA, however the big news for V8 fans was the re-introduction
of the V8 (available for the first time since 1983). The Mustang sourced 5.0 liter "Windsor" V8
developed a respectable 165kW. The front suspension
was further improved over the EA, as Ford upgraded
the springs, introduced gas shock absorbers, negative
camber and increased castor front end geometry - the
end result being far better handling. Spotting the difference between an EA and EB can be a little difficult. Look for the placement of the Ford badge - on the EB it was relocated to the grille. From 1991 there were new wheel trims, and the reverse lights were relocated to either side of the number plate. Improvements to the suspension consisted of gas-pressurised shock absorbers, uprated mounting bushes, revised front geometry and higher geared steering, making the car much more refined.
