Stillen FTSB Installation Directions

I splurged and bought one of these from a fellow Orger.

I would like to see Stillen's installation instructions before beginning - but I could not find them on the Series of Tubes.

Please point me to them.

Thanks -

(1) Remove front strut mounting nuts ... 6 of them;

(2) Install tower bar brackets on each strut tower;

(3) Reinstall strut mounting nuts ... 6 of them, retorquing nuts to manufacturer specs;

(4) Install tower bar into tower bar brackets;

(5) Adjust tower bar tension, using adjustment nuts, so that even/equal, yet notable force is exerted outward (i.e. toward each strut tower/strut mount).

(6) Use tower bar jamb nuts to secure tower bar adjustment nuts in place.

You’re done.

Have the car on even ground, loosen and remove the upper strut mount nuts, install the bar, reinstall upper strut mount nuts, torque to 50ft/lbs and call it a day?
