  Solid Product once installed
By on 12/15/2014
Image uploaded by Craig S. Product wrapped very efficiently. Box arrived a little beat up, but the Brace was in fine shape. Also purchased the MM Camber/Caster Plates. Installation procedure is as follows (for my 38 year old 79 Mercury Capri with 230,000 HARD miles):
1) Test fit with the Firewall Bolts loosely installed.
2) Decided to start with Pass side, so I left the firewall bolt loosely installed. Had to loosen the C/C Plate and then pressed the bar down to be as close to seated on the strut tower.
3) Marked TOP holes, took bar off, drilled holes, reinstalled pass side firewall bolt and installed top bolts on tower bracket to pull bar flush to the tower.
4) Drilled 3rd bracket hole toward front of car.
5) Threaded Driver's side Firewall Bolt and pressed bar down to strut tower. (I actually used a screwdriver to pry against the camber plate to push it to the tower).
6) Drilled top holes and installed bolts, then drilled front hole and installed bolts.
7) Tightened all bolts and reinstalled all the components that had to be removed or repositioned.
I am sure each vehicle will be a little different, based on original manufacturing tolerances and abuse levels throughout the life of the car. This is the third complete suspension replacement/upgrade since I bought it new in 1979.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
