We had a customer come in the other day to have our exclusive front strut tower bar
installed on his beautiful 2014 racing yellow 991.
We offer free installation of this product if you're in the area
, but for those of you that want to install it yourself, it's a fairly quick and simple process for the average DIYer to tackle at home.
You really only need 3 tools:
- Socket wrench with 13mm socket (for the strut tower nuts)
- 16mm wrench (for rotating the turnbuckle bolts to adjust bar preload)
- 19mm wrench (for tightening the jam nuts on the turnbuckle bolts, and for the bolts that secure the rod ends to the end plates)
First thing's first: you'll want to lay out the front strut tower kit for preassembly. The kit should come with a pack containing left hand threaded and right hand threaded rod ends (and will be labeled LH and RH, respectively), a pack containing two turnbuckle bolts with jam nuts pre-installed and two bolts with crush washers and nuts, two end plates, and the strut tower bar itself.
