My girlfriend got me a BBK Strut Tower Brace for my 1999 Mustang GT. The instructions they sent me were pretty crappy and hard to understand. Could anyone walk me through the installation. I already removed my windshield wipers, broke the cowl removing it. I just don't understand where the firewall mount goes, and how everything is supposed to look before drilling. If anyone has any pictures or anything that would be appreciated too!
Thanks guys, it's been a long day! :dunce:

What are you trying to see here is my bbk strut brace

You take off the platice firewall cover mount the mounting plate to the firewall then the strut to the plate get it into the correct position mark and drill holes

There's like a thin metal lip that comes off the firewall the plate bolts to that

okay I don't think I can dumb this down anymore than this.
excuse the crappy illustration



sorry for sizing. blow it up.

OKAY NOW BEFORE YOU GO DRILLING HOLES!
I cant stress this unless you want a crooked strut bar before you go drilling the mounting holes mock up the entire thing and get it perfectly aligned! mark your drill holes and then mount the mounting plate. once you got the mounting plate you might want to jack up the car if its lowered to install the hardware because theres not a lot of room to work under the wheel well when lowered. MAKE SURE the care is jacked up evenly!!! and install the bar to the mount and the strut towers tightening everything down evenly. drop her down go over the tightening one more time and boom your done enjoy

heres some added pictures

Don't forget to trip the plastic cover as you can see here to be able to get it flush!!
