The torque box reinforcements strengthen the points and which both upper and lower control arms attach to the subframe. Without these reinforcements installed you stand a very high chance of ripping or distorting the factory attaching points. I strongly recommend installing them on any fox body at stock or modified performance levels.

I haven't seen a video if there is one. I bolted them in and then I welded them in place AFTER I installed the rear upper and lower control arms. The reason I did this was to make sure they everything lined up correctly. Once welded in, done is done.
You may be able to find some sort of YouTube video if you search for fox body battle box installation. If I can help you in any other way please don't hesitate to ask me.

I had the same issue when I did my install. To correct the problem I installed all of the bolts that would line up then I drilled the home to allow the installation of the bolts that didn't line up previously. I figured that it didn't matter since I was going to weld them in after I bolted them on. They have been installed about a year now and have had no issues. And I drive it like a rental with just a tick shy of 500hp and HARD launches as well. - Jamie 7 minutes ago
