So i was going to install the Perrin FSB this weekend and ran out of time, but i did get under the front end and took off the plastic shield to have a look. I see the frame brace has to be removed to access to sway bar. I couldn't move any of those bolts (I didnt have a breaker bar) even the slightest amount. So i guess I'll need to fire up the compressor and get the power tools out ! Anyone else find these bolts to be super tight ?

I would be careful taking an impact wrench to those bolts, I use a breaker bar instead.

+1 for breaker bar. Before I had a breaker bar my life was much harder, bolts that I swore would NEVER turn and were seized would break lose with ease. A breaker bar is easier on the hands, joints, and back.
