Bob, good eye, those are shock protectors I made. They are "L" shaped alloy parts that bolt on to the top of the shock tower and partially cover the top of the shock. In the event the car flips over and lands on the front shock tower the protectors take some of the blow and keep the top of the shock from getting mangled. They are designed to give (break off) if too much force is encountered to save the shock mounts.
