Installing a Strut Tower Brace

First you need to size up the brace.  Lay it on the strut towers, get it centered, and turn the threaded portions on each end (if it has them) to get it the right length. 

Once its centered, use some masking tape to mark the location of the ends, that way if something moves, its easy to put it exactly back where it was withough having to recenter it.

 

Scribe the holes, drill them out, then paint over the exposed metal.

Bolt on the end and make sure it lined up w/ the masking tape.

Install the other side, then set the bar down on the ends and bolt it up.  Once its all tight, you can tighten the jamb nuts on the bar so it doesn't turn.  Make sure its level!
