TB Performance Mid Brace Install

Installed the mid brace

Products

Really simple install.

1- Jack up the car safely. A good ramp or jack stands.

2- Unbolt the four bolts #19


3- Line up the brace and rebolt. Had to use an extension


All done

A couple of short drives around town, does seem a bit tighter in the corners. :-)

Thanks. It is really an easy job. The hardest part is just getting the bolts loose, kinda tight but manageable

Any have the torque specs for these 4 bolts? I will always torque to spec when it comes to anything suspension related.

The only torque spec was, "That seems even." I would prefer to have them torqued properly but don't currently have a torque wrench nor know what it would be.

I had a similar question on another forum awhile back. An answer I received was before taking anything apart, put your torque wrench on the bolt(s) starting with a low setting and then increase the setting until the torque wrench stops clicking. Once it stops clicking and you actually turn the bolt you have determined the torque used originally.
