|Ok so ive had my powerlab spacer sitting around in my house for like 3 weeks now and i really want to install it. well last weekend i went to a friend of mines to put it on. We were trying to get the bolts of the strut bar and we got about 1 off on each side and then it just wasnt happening. soooo i called powerlab and they said i have to loosing the actual bar. does that mean i have to raise it up all the way, or lower it all the way???? closer to the plenum or hood to take the pressure off the bolt? even after i did that i still couldnt get them off because the damn bolts looked like balled up tin foil they were so stripped....an advice on how to get these off? what will i need so i'll have an idea when i go to home depot?|
Here is a link to the Pure Innovations install procedures. Click on the download PDF file and it explains how on the 3rd page. Hope this helps.
|That link worked for me. You have to loosen the center bolt on the bar by turning it away from you (660 deg) if you are standing in front of the car. Thats what I got from it.|
|First, yes you need to shorten the bar by turning the nut at the end. Just write down how much you loosened it so you can put it back. Second, how did you strip the bolt heads? You're using a 14mm 6-point socket, right (and not some SAE size or pliers)?|
Go to your local Sears and pick up this set, or one similar. make sure the set you get has a 14mm:
Then, go to Ace Hardware and pick up (6) 10mm x 1.5 pitch x 20mm long flange bolts ($1.75 each) and (2) 10mm x 1.5 pitch flange nuts (about $.45 each). Much cheaper than buying hardware from Nissan.
|u know i actually have those and i stripped it beyond the use of those....its sad but true.|
