    O.K., I have a great strut brace. How do I get my thick hands underneath the tower go install the bolts?

    I tried to get pics but the flash won out. I will have to try a backup light source.

    Here is a driver side view of the front hole where one of the bolts go. The other is further back on the right next to the top of the strut.

    Nice;

    I't so much easier than the brace on the Gen III, though.

    I used fishing line to tie a bolt and pull it in place, only three more to go!
