thats what people who have the apr say, thtat they hear a popping sound or squeaky sound when turning. i thinks thats normal for the apr, check the reviews for the apr strut bar

Fuck APR, I'm going Hypermotive for the bling factor... too many complaints about this bar leads me to decide on another one.

My apr is always creacking. There are two hex screws on each side under the bar that need to be tighted (or thats how it was for me) only problem is you have to take the bar off completly. If i could afford it right now i would look into buying another bar but i guess i will live with the creaks till i can.

i think you can install the bar with the two hex screws facing upward..n e ways, i had apr before and had the same problem(popping noise). it annoyed the hell out of me so i sold it and got tanabe instead... thumbsup
