Tanabe Bar
Hey guys, I just ordered a front tanabe strut bar and i was just thinking is there any suggestion on how to install it? or do i need a additional part to properly install it.

I heard that is recommended to get a battery tie down, i really don't know is that is necessary.

Thanks to all...

its six bolts... install is probably easier than changing a flat tire...

you dont need a battery tie down.

It's easier than taking out and replacing the jack in your trunk and you don't need the battery tie down.

I get the point dude, is just that some people say that you have to do something to the strut bar so it does't make a weird noise, i don't know man.

I know that it is a very easy installation.

if you have a GTS, the hyper automotive battery tie down and that tanabe bar will still be a tight fit, trust me...

Is there a website other than suprastore where they sell the tanabe bar at a great price.

Suprastore is giving me a hard time making the payment.

Let me know
