APR STRUT BAR
Just got my ARP strut bar, Thanks a mil. Isaac thumbsup, but I have one question. I installed it today and the front sounds as if its alittle loose when going over bumps. I tightened the nuts down as tight as pos., VERY TIGHT! and it still sounds like the front sus. is loose. I noticed this right after the install and want to know if anyone else has exp. this confused

Its normal. I've heard the the APR just tends to squeak on certain people's cars.

did you tighten every screw?

not just the 3 screw on each side...but the 2 chrome screws on each side?

and dont tighten the screws too hard...tight them just right.

sometimes the metal bar that goes across the engine gets pressed up against the metal lip that sits right behind it, so when you take hard turns, or bumps, it rubs against it and causes a squeak.
Loosen ALL the bolts, have a friend pull the bar away from that lip towards the front of the car, then tighten the bolts, see if that helps, i have the apr bar as well, so a little experience on my end!!
