K5 Optima Store Front Strut Brace from Ultra Racing

Kudos to Dave and the folks at K5 Optima Store. Got my ultra racing performance front strut tower bar in record time - and it was on sale!


Installed it last night, and as others have experienced, the most time consuming thing is getting the wrapping and label off the bar itself. Install was a breeze - remove bolt for diagnostic port - zip tie it lower, then remove 4 bolts, seat the brace, then tighten.

Just wondering how much torque to put on those nuts? Also, after driving it a while, should I make sure that the bar hasn't "settled" at all and re-torque them?

Steering is more planted - almost feels a bit heavier. Love it.

Going to get a tire rotate, balance, and realign tomorrow now that it is installed.
