Installing Ultra Racing Front Strut Bar AR 156 V6

My first post is about installing the front strut bar from Ultra Racing, it will fit any 156, mine is a 2.5 v6, i was looking for some pics with the bar installed without luck, so i had to buy it and share it ...

Tools Needed:

First Some Imgs:

Ok , now let's work !!!

Remove the 4 nuts in this locations with the 17mm socket....

and fit the bar iside the bolts, should be a piece of cake ...

then, screw the nuts in their place and we're done !

Sorry about my spelling ...

Greetings from Mexico !!!

Welcome to AO.

It is nice to see the strut brace do not cover the steering fluid reservoir. The Wiechers' strutbar looks more like a classic strut brace, but you need to lift it to get to the power steering fuild - not that you need to looks at it all that often

Thanks Blackheart.

So, how has it affected the cars handling? Any improvement or change to the feel of the car?

I found it added to under steer in my former 156... But it def made my suspension 'work better' if that makes sense.

Did you torque up the bolts when you refitted them?
I ended up experiencing some knocking due to not tightening the bolts enough.
