I had a bit of a problem fitting the top cross bar. With both locking nuts on it was just a bit to long. I think shaving the nipple off of both of them should take care of that... We'll see tomorrow.
Oh ya the hole in the cover I'm putting that off so that when I bugger them up it won't **** my buzz...

sickness, do you have to adjust anything or is it good to go
any benefits from it so far? looks like it would do a really good job of keeping the arse in line

Don't know yet but I'll find out real soon... :twisted:

I did make a 90 degree right at 30mph tonight and no tire squeal.




Damn this thing is pretty! To bad it'll never be seen...

The lower arm tabs. Those small black anodized rectangles. There are three holes. One goes into the existing threaded hole, one is where that tie down screws into, and then one that you drill into the wheel well. It's pretty easy, so long as you use a punch to mark the hole before drilling.
