Order mine (Tanabe). Make sure to install with the front wheels off the ground, or it defeats the purpose of a strut bar.
I have read different opinions and some base this off the number of pieces in the design. Do the kits come with specific directions? This is from another forum on a different car:

Should the car be lifted before you install the tanabe strut bar?

My only complain is the nut under the bar i cant tighten it because i dont have enough force because of obstruction my wrench hit the battery,hose and coolant reservoir.

Thats why i bought this i hope will solve my problem https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B003NSC7K2/ref=ya_aw_od_pi?ie=UTF8&psc=1

@all

Noob question. Strut front bar will not damage something in the future example shocks,wheels etc...

I used a small spanner wrench to get into that bolt to tighten it.
There should not be any damage unless you hit something big. Mine has been installed for 6 months now and no issue when changing out my wheels and tires.

Couldn't you just mount the brackets on the struts and the put the center bar on?
