Question Frnt. strut tower bar install questions??

anyone know if you are supposed to tighten the nuts to the bolts with a ceartain amount of force (Torque), if so does anyone know what that torque rating is on a MY00? also, how tight are you supposed to tighten the center bar (JC Sports Bar), how much pressure against the mounts? just till it is firm, then tighten the nuts on either side?? thanx for the help.

The three strut bearing bolts should be tightened to 12-15 ft/lbs.

Strut-Bearing Bolts - the bolts that hold the strut on (that bear all the weight that the car puts on the strut). You're looking at the correct 3 bolts.

Sorry for the confusion! The strut bearing bolts are the three on each side that you mount the strut bar to!
