HELP, easy question i believe

im installing my tanabe strut bar right now! (harder than i thought it was goin to be frown )

im stuck, first i thought that F-ing bar was to short but figured out you can make it long, then i figured out you have to move the battery terminal things...

now i just dont no what to do, do you have to remove the stock tie down bar???

thanks in advance (its about 1230am here, sry if i sound crazy)

i looked in the install guide but there is not guide for the tanabe bar, i didnt get a tie down bar with the strut bar so does that mean i just leave the stock one on?

yes leave the stock one on or you could get a hypermotive battery tie down ..

or cheaper way is just to file the stock battery tie down a bit if you want Linked Image

here's a picture of the tiedown bar in Sultan's car

Get a battery tie from Hypermotive, stock is too big: www.hypermotive.net

Turn the battery terminals 90 degrees

The rest is really just common sense, but do note that the bar its self sits at all most a 45 degree angle in order to fit between the battery terminals and the tie posts. Other wise it will smash into both and you will not be able to close the hood.
