Well, I just got my tower brace from shark racing and I was wondering if there is anything I need to worry about during the install? Also is there a certain amount I have to torque the bolts on the strut tower?

It is fairly simple. Cutting the intereior in the back I did not enjoy doing. Also the little sensor mounted on the front struts is the knock sensor. It needs to be remounted somewhere solid. I modified the bracket it came on and was able to remount it in the same place.

On the knock sensor, I just rebolted back on top of the strut bracket. I have an Accent, but it should be the same.

You can kind of see it in this picture:

I didn't use a torque wrench when I did my install. I just tightened them real good.

I also found that when I installed the rear bar I didn't have to remove that piece of metal over the bolts. I just used a rachet and short socket to do the job. Saved me about the trouble of removing and replacing them.

If you don't know what I am talking about... check out Speedstate's web page. They have a very detailed installation page for both strut bars.
